CDOT opens one lane of CO 145

Local News

One lane of alternating traffic will be open on CO 145 north of Dolores as CDOT continues to work to reconstruct the road following last week’s rock fall.

Crews blasted a 2 million pound boulder on the road into smaller pieces to clear the road. The second boulder, weighing more than 8 million pounds remains just off the side of the road. 

Crews estimate anyone traveling on CO 145 should expect delays as long as an hour during the emergency project.
