Date: June 4, 2012

Starting on Wednesday, June 6 through Friday, June 22 Colorado National Monument will be inspecting and cleaning out sewer lines between mile marker three and four (Fruita Canyon Overlook to the Visitor Center/campground road) along the west end of Rim Rock Drive.

One-way traffic will take place within a 1-mile section work zone during the hours of 7:30AM and 4:30PM, Monday through Friday. Park visitors can expect 5-10 minute delays in the work zone throughout the duration of the project. Motorists and bicyclists are reminded that they must obey all flagging stops in the work zone.

The National Park Service is committed to minimizing impacts to visitors and community members. We ask for the public's understanding and patience while the road work is ongoing.

Please note: Weather, logistics and mechanical failure sometimes may delay work on the project and/or change plans on short notice. The public is invited to visit the park's website regularly at www.nps.gov/colm for the latest updates and changes or call the park offices at 970-858-3617 ext. 300.

Thank you for your patience.
