New changes are ahead for motorists who access Government Springs Road from US Highway 550. The access for Government Springs Road is permanently closed as paving operations are complete. A new access to Government Springs Road has been constructed by way of the new intersection at Uncompahgre Road and the newly paved Frontage Road along the west side of Highway 550. Highway signs in the area will be modified over the coming weeks to help motorists with this new traffic pattern. Paint striping of the frontage road will also be provided pending contractor availability. For questions, please contact the County Engineer Dean Cooper at 970-252-7001.
