OURAY COUNTY: CR 1 test section approved

By Sheridan Block

There’s no sign of asphalt yet, but a test section of County Road 1 will undergo re-surfacing as soon as next week.

On Tuesday, the Board of County Commissioners gave the go ahead for work to begin on a test segment of the road. The test section will be re-surfaced with a new gravel mixture and will receive appropriate drainage improvements. The purpose of the project is to not only make necessary improvements to the road, but to find a more sustainable way of maintaining the road in the future — especially if federal TIGER grant funding is not awarded to the county, delaying hopes for future paving.
