Fruita, CO – Colorado National Monument has an opportunity to make some traffic improvements at the East Entrance in 2017-18. While this project will concentrate on relieving congestion, it must comply with all traffic safety rules, federal fee collection requirements, emergency service needs and still safeguard monument resources. 

The monument staff is hosting two open houses to hear community member’s thoughts on relieving congestion, especially as it relates to both local and visitor traffic. Members of a community transportation planning group will also be on-hand to listen to any additional traffic/transportation thoughts. Open houses will be held at the following locations:
