County crews recently finished placing four inches of new gravel on two separate sections of 90 Road that traverse through the Uncompahgre National Forest.

The first section started at the National Forest Service line located about 3.5 miles east of the San Miguel River bridge and extended easterly 2.48 miles. The gravel was hauled from the county gravel pit located near the Nucla airport.

The other section of 90 Road was from the National Forest Service line located east of the Silesca Ranger Station and extended 2.78 miles southwest to Divide Road. The gravel was hauled from the County owned Shavano gravel pit located on 90 Road.

“We are pleased with the outcome of this effort and would like to offer our gratitude to Montrose County for their role in this collaboration,” said Norwood District Ranger Matt Zumstein. “We look forward to future opportunities to partner and leverage efficiencies with Montrose County to the benefit of the resources we are responsible for managing and the public roads that we collectively serve.”

 “These sections of roads were in need of additional surface gravel and it was great to have two government entities working together to improve the road,” commented Keith Laube, Montrose County Public Works Director. The cost sharing for the project was approved by the Board of County Commissioners and the National Forest Service through two separate agreements approved in 2017 and 2018. The total cost, including labor, equipment and materials, for the 5.26-mile gravel resurfacing project was $147,908. The Forest Service reimbursed the County for $50,501.
