Colorado Highway 10 between Walsenburg and La Junta is closed for significant road work.
The work is expected to take two months.
The lonely highway is often used by trucks as a hazardous materials route. The State Patrol recommends the following alternate routes:
Use State Highway 350-between the cities of La Junta and Trinidad-to access points south of Walsenburg and La Junta, where other designated routes are not practical. Traffic should transition between State Highway 350 and I-25 by traveling on U.S. Highway 160-between the Beshoar Junction and I-25-via the Kit Carson Bypass (I-25, exit 15).
For questions regarding the closure, contact the Colorado State Patrol's Hazardous Materials Section at (303) 273-1900.
