US 160/US 550 Durango Continuous Flow Intersection
The US 160/US 550 Continuous Flow Intersection (CFI) in Durango will make operational improvements to this junction to reduce driver delays. Essentially, the CFI will reconfigure traffic turn lanes, striping and signaling for the three approaches to the junction. This change will reduce congestion and wait time at the intersection of these two major highways, particularly during peak travel periods. Cycling and pedestrian improvements are planned throughout the project.
Because the US 160/US 550 intersection is in close proximity to College Avenue, improvements will be made at that intersection as well, including reconfigured lanes on College Ave. approaches to improve signal operation efficiency.
The project is estimated to cost a total of $5.4 million, which includes design through construction.The project will be under construction in the spring/summer of 2014.
