The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) continues a safety and improvements project on an 11-mile segment of Colo. Highway 9 between Kremmling and Silverthorne. The work is expected to last until mid-July 2017, with a winter break, mid-November through March.

Traffic impacts can be expected northbound and southbound on Hwy. 9, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with possible work Saturday. Motorists can expect 15 minute stops through the construction zone, with 30 minute delays overall due to reduced speeds.

Crews are working north of County Road (CR) 10 to CR 33, and near Blue Valley Ranch, where there is one lane of alternating traffic.

Wide loads are restricted to 12 feet.

Motorists, cyclists and bikers, are urged to exercise extreme caution and follow reduced posted speed limits and flaggers’ instructions. Please adhere to the 35 mph or 45 mph speed Limits as posted.
