The Colorado Department of Transportation will be re-paving the section of State Highway 91 from Copper Mtn to Leadville this summer. As part of this project they will be adding additional shoulder width to make the road safer for cycling traffic. The project is scheduled to start beginning of June, and will continue throughout the summer, and most likely part of spring/summer of 2012. Work days and hours will be Monday thru Thursday, 6:00 am to 6:00 pm, and Fridays 6:00 am to 12:00 noon. There will be no work on weekends and holidays. Cycle traffic is not recommended during these construction times, but is not prohibited. There will be delays up to 20 minutes, with only one lane open during majority of construction. Also, please be aware that even during non-construction times the condition of the road surface might be in a state of disrepair.
More information will be posted as details are developed and finalized.
