Wolf Creek Pass Construction Delays
Just a heads up for anyone planning to use US160 across southern CO in the next month or so. There is a major road resurfacing project going on near Wolf Creek Pass and they currently have the east side of the pass down to one lane at 3 different spots, with flag men holding up traffic for 15 mins while a mile long line of vehicles passes through one direction, then the other. Maybe every day won't be as bad as today, but it took me 2 hrs to get from South Fork to Pagosa for a lunch date (its usually a 45 min drive; 35 on the Harley).
If you're already in the area, the alternate is a long way around. But if you're far enough away and just transiting CO, there are other alternate routes, depending on your destination.
They usually make the contractor wait till late summer to start these major resurfacing jobs, but this one was allowed to start right as the summer tourist traffic peaks. Looks like this is an ongoing major project that will be there for a month or two or three.
