Road work on a four-mile stretch of U.S. 50 between Gunnison and Montrose starts in mid-April. The Little Blue Creek Canyon Project will cause partial and complete road closures over the next two years, impacting travel from Lake City or Gunnison to Montrose or Delta, and surrounding areas. For KVNF News, Laura Palmisano speaks with project official Kathleen Wanatowicz and project manager Travis Madsen.
