Avalanche Forces Road Closure
Montrose, COLO.— Montrose County Road and Bridge has closed Z84 Road, also known as High Mesa Road, of the Little Cimarron in the southeast corner of Montrose County. The closure begins 12.5 miles off the highway. The road, which is covered with nearly five feet of snow, is blocked by significant debris. At this time crews are working to remove the debris and make repairs.
"Snow and water continue to be issues for my crew this season," said Road and Bridge Foreman Chuck Bell. "Roads have washed out and remain snow-packed, but an avalanche like this is something I haven't seen in a while--there is a large amount of debris blocking the road."
The public will be notified when the road is made safe for travel.
