Park County, CO – A major construction project is underway that will impact travel along Highway 285 until mid-October. On July 11, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) began full closures on US 285 over the South Fork of South Platte at MP 172.2 to MP 172.5. The off-site detour utilizes CO 9 and US 24 and motorists should expect associated delays and plan ahead.
“Work consists of one bridge replacement as well as relieving wetland impacts and redirecting streams. Additionally, the bridge maintenance consists of bridge rail and guardrail replacement, as well as roadway reconstruction for the bridge approach. This project will benefit motorists by making the bridge safer and improving the driving experience,” said CDOT.
Access to all local roadways will be maintained during the closure. The project is located in Park County on US 285 from MP 172.2 to 173.5 and the closure began on July 11 and will remain closed until mid-October.
