A portion of U.S. 285 between Colo. 9 and Antero Junction will be closed to through traffic until Aug. 29, the Colorado Department of Transportation announced.
According to a CDOT press release, local traffic will be allowed access through the area.
The detour hours will be 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and U.S. 285 will reopen every weekend from 8:30 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Monday.
Southbound traffic on U.S. 285 will take Colo. 9 South to U.S. 24 West, then back onto U.S. 285.
Northbound traffic will be detoured onto U.S. 24 East to Colo. 9 North, then back onto U.S. 285.
In addition, on Friday of this week, a northbound single-lane closure will be in effect from 5 a.m. to noon from approximately milepost 188 to 190 near Fairplay.
The road closure is because CDOT has started a 20-mile resurfacing and 3-mile widening project for passing lanes and road improvement.
The project includes 3 miles of passing lanes in each direction south of Fairplay, as well as culvert extensions, surface improvements and guardrail updates.
