U.S. 285 safety improvements on the way
PINE JUNCTION, Colo. -- The Colorado Department of Transportation is getting set to make some emergency safety improvements on U.S. 285 near Shaffers Crossing west of Conifer. Work began Thursday on the road with surveying and soil sample testing. “To increase safety and help stop head-on collisions, this project will widen the median area, pushing the traveling lanes outside the shoulders,” CDOT spokeswoman Emily Wolfong said.
