US 50 LITTLE BLUE CREEK CANYON IMPROVEMENTS (Gunnison/Montrose Counties)

Starting in April 2021, the Federal Highway Administration, Central Federal Lands Highway Division and the Colorado Department of Transportation are starting a 4-mile roadway project on US 50 approximately 30 miles from Montrose and Gunnison.

With the much needed Federally funded repairs and redesign of the roadway there are several things to know before you travel or plan around this project.  See below for information on Closure Times, Resources regarding this project, and Sign up for text alerts.

In November of 2020, the project plans for the US Little Blue Creek Canyon Improvements were introduced to the community.  WCCA submitted member concerns which helped factor into adjustments made by the governing entities  to help minimize closure times, plan for community needs and to create public information outlets to answer questions and to address concerns and update the community .  WCCA will continue to work with CDOT and FHWA to express concerns of our members and productively collaborate on possible solutions when available.
