Road work along the I-70 corridor and traffic flow

Greetings all - Safety is of paramount concern and I wanted to inform you of the current happenings in the Westwater area.

Please be advised that there are two large road construction projects underway from the Colorado border to the west Cisco exit along I-70. Expect heavy semi truck traffic!! The trucks will be hauling ~ 50,000 tons of material. This equates to approximately 30 semi trucks per day between the hours of 5:00 am and 7:00 pm for the next month.

The truck traffic will depart the Westwater ranch and drive along the exit 221, head under the I-70 and back to the east along the frontage road before coming back down the 227 exit. I encourage boaters and bikers to utilize the 227 exit in order to maintain the flow of traffic. Driving slower than normal is a good idea as it allows for more response time if you encounter a semi-truck on the narrow road bed.

Please spread the word and let me know if you have any questions. Thank you and safe travels!!
