Next week, the Colorado Department of Transportation will start a bridge rehabilitation project on State Highway 131 over the Yampa River. The relatively short work zone is located south of Routt County Road 15 in Phippsburg. Crews will perform deck repairs, waterproofing, joint replacement and paving. The project was announced in this week’s Moffat County Commissioners meeting, when Commissioner Chuck Grobe revealed that the Downtown Oak Creek road project planned for this summer has been scrapped. The bridge work means that routes to Denver this summer will be cumbersome. The projects underway on State Highway 9, the upcoming bridge work in Phippsburg, and a resurfacing project planned for the west side of Berthoud Pass will mean delays on each route to the Denver area.
