CDOT is currently upgrading US34 through Thompson Canyon. Contractors blasting rock finished their portion of the project earlier than planned, allowing CDOT to begin work on bridge construction at the Horsehoe curve. This means the road is still on track to open before Memorial Day as originally scheduled. Traffic has been limited since October. After it reopens, US34 should remain open for summer travel. CDOT will announce future phases of construction at a later date.
