East Structure Construction near Timpas

The Colorado Department of Transportation and its contracting partner CapitalTezak Joint Venture will begin replacement of two bridge structures on US 350 near Timpas starting the week of Oct. 3.

The bridge replacement work will require a 21-day, full closure of US 350 between mile post 57.5 and 57.1 beginning Oct. 10. Crews will be assembling the structures on the shoulders of the roadway and then will set the structures into place.

Detour Information

During the full road closure for US 350 near Timpas, motorists should detour at the northern end of the project at La Junta and use Colorado Highway 10 to Walsenburg. At the southern end of the project, US 350 will be closed at MP 60. Use Interstate-25 north to Walsenburg and CO 10 to La Junta.

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change.
