  • Eastbound and westbound intermittent one-lane road closure on US 50

About the Project:

The US 50 Gunnison County Passing Lane Project will reconstruct and improve safety on US 50. Safety improvements will include the construction of a passing lane along with the removal and replacement of 39 guardrail end anchors. These improvements are designed to give motorists wider roads to travel on during inclement weather, higher traffic volumes, and to prevent road erosion. The resurfacing and widening will create smoother pavement and improved driving conditions, adding chain-up areas will significantly improve safety for travelers when weather conditions suddenly change.
