OURAY, Colo. — The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will conduct winter maintenance on US Highway 550 Red Mountain Pass beginning at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

The department said drivers should expect intermittent 30-minute delays between Ouray and Silverton for most of the afternoon. Delays may be extended depending on weather conditions and the extent of snow removal required.

CDOT crews cleared debris from a snow slide that occurred on March 15 during previous winter maintenance operations.
