CDOT to begin rock mitigation in Bighorn Sheep Canyon Thursday

The Colorado Department of Transportation begins rock mitigation operations on U.S. 50 in Bighorn Sheep Canyon Wednesday, Aug. 5. The site is about 37 miles west of Caņon City and 20 miles east of Salida, according to a press release issued by Bob Wilson, CDOT communications manager.

Drivers can expect traffic stops up to 20 minutes from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Work continues Aug. 6, during the same hours. Then on Monday, Aug. 10, rock mitigation work continues with a Monday through Thursday schedule, until Aug. 27.

During this time period, additional sites will be targeted for mitigation along State Highways 96 and 115. An advisory regarding the specific locations and traffic impacts will be distributed before work gets underway.

CDOT is removing loose rocks and debris from the slopes above U.S. 50 and other area highways that came loose during numerous rainstorms in the late spring and from the higher than average rainfall this summer.
