Avalanche control for Red Mountain Pass

Colorado News

RED MOUNTAIN PASS– Avalanches covered US 550 last year causing closures of the highway for multiple weeks.

To prevent a similar event, CDOT says avalanche control will take place on Friday on the north side of Red Mountain Pass between Silverton and Ouray.

Avalanche control work will begin at 10:00 a.m. and the going will be slow all day.

Drivers should prepare delays up to one hour for much of Friday morning and afternoon.
