County announces road repairs, closures Thursday

The Routt County Road and Bridge Department announced road repairs and closures in several county areas on Thursday. Work is under way on Routt County Road 67’s Green Pipe Bridge, near the South Fork of the Williams Fork River in southwest Routt County. Expect delays at the bridge while crews are repairing the streambank. County Road 80, the California Park Road, is closed for the season – no more than 90 days – between the south and north U.S. Forest Service gates. The county department also has made a seasonal closure of C.R. 18, from the cattle guard below Stagecoach Reservoir to the gate at Pleasant Valley, because of spring runoff and water flowing across the road. Call the department at 879-0831 with questions.
