Bailey Culvert Project Map

This project consists of installing culvert, cleaning culverts and box culverts, repairing joints, reinforcement mat, spray line culverts, and adding rock check dams. In some locations, work will require trench digging and a temporary traffic signal for traffic control with single lane closures. 

Crews on US 285 will be working 24/7 beginning Sunday, March 21st through Friday, March 26th at 9:00 a.m. Lane closures will be directed by flaggers and a temporary traffic signal.

Travel Impacts 

Work hours will take place 24/7 March 21 through March 26. Drivers will experience shoulder closures, single-lane closures and day time lane closures throughout the duration of the project. Lane closures will be directed by flaggers and a temporary traffic signal. The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph within the work zone and will be strictly enforced. Traffic fines will be doubled in the work zone. Motorists should slow down, drive with caution and give themselves extra travel time.
