  • Roadwork on a four-mile stretch of U.S. 50 between Montrose and Gunnison known as the Little Blue Creek Canyon Project resumes this week, weather permitting. As KVNF’s Laura Palmisano reports, commuters should expect delays and closures as work ramps up for the season starting March 14th.
  • Despite heavy snow in the North Fork Valley, a motorist braving the weather to drive to Carbondale on New Year’s Eve didn't make it. But she was rescued the next morning on McClure Pass. Kate Redmond tracks down the details. Delta County redraws its district maps every ten years according to population changes as reflected in the Census. Even though the county has seen plenty of real estate changing hands the past decade, overall population numbers have not changed that much. Plus, scientists say climate change created perfect conditions for last week’s wildfire in Boulder County.

  • Federal law enforcement arrested a Telluride man over the weekend for his alleged involvement in the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol.

CDOT’s senior historian tells KVNF the bridge adoption we reported on back in May is happening after all, with the City of Delta and Montrose County taking the historic trusses from the old bridge.
  • For our next story in our Rocky Mountain Community Radio reporting collaboration on affordable housing, KSJD’s Sofia Stuart-Rasi reports on how the only shelter in Montezuma County for people experiencing homelessness fits into the complicated housing crisis in southwest Colorado.
