MEEKER | The Colorado Department of Transportation has announced plans to close Hwy. 13 for two hours per day and reroute traffic to CR 5 during a construction project this summer that failed to include traffic control plans. The Rio Blanco County Board of Commissioners are opposed to this plan and are asking citizens to attend a public meeting with CDOT representatives Monday, June 10 at the RBC Courthouse from 10-11 a.m. to share their concerns about the proposal. Negative impacts on tourism, local commuters and safety hazards of detouring heavy summer traffic to CR 5 are all possible considerations. Please attend and share your concerns.
