La Plata County will reconstruct approximately 2.4 miles of County Road 120, from the 3900 block to the 6400 block, beginning May 9. This work is being completed as part of the required road improvements for the GCC Energy coal mine land use permit. Four Corners Materials will be executing the project.

 

Working hours will be 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and is expected to continue until approximately Oct. 4. Traffic may be reduced to one lane while work is in progress. Delays of up to 15 minutes should be anticipated; however, every attempt will be made to minimize traffic delays. Motorists are encouraged to allow a little extra travel time and to drive with caution through the work zone for their own safety and the safety of the work crews.

 

For more information, please contact Jim Davis at (970) 382-6372 at the La Plata County Public Works Department.

The 2022 Noxious Weed Cost Share Rebate Program is available to assist private landowners and/or managers with the cost of controlling targeted weeds on their property. The cost share funds are to be used primarily for purchasing herbicide and surfactant to treat weed-infested areas and also covers seed mixes used to re‐vegetate areas after treatment. 

To be eligible, the landowner must have a county-issued weed management plan. If not, applicants must schedule and (ideally) participate in a site visit with the La Plata County weed control manager. Contact the county weeds department to arrange a visit. A weed plan is not required if a Colorado licensed professional performs treatment but only material costs can be eligible.

For more information and an application, please visit laplataweeds.org or contact Ben Bain, La Plata County’s weed control coordinator, at (970) 382-6470
