  Last week while going over the flight planning calendar for the Oakdale Aero Clug I noticed my buddy Jordan had an airplane scheduled for Monday morning.  All the other desirable days were booked or the weather report had high winds forecast.  I texted Jordan and asked if he’d like to split the rental.  He […]

Sterling Journal-Advocate
Travelers along Highway 6 between Sterling and the Kansas border could see delays over the next few weeks. The Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor Surface Preparation Technologies will be adding centerline rumble strips along 60 miles of Colorado Highway 6. The $298,000 project will start at the Kansas border in Phillips County and proceed westward to Sterling in Logan County . The work will occur between June 25 and July 12. Work will not take place on weekends or July 3-5, due to the Independence Day holiday. As part of CDOT’s Whole System-Whole Safety initiative, rumble strips are an effective measure for reducing roadway departure crashes. The noise and vibration produced by rumble strips alert drivers when they leave the travel lane. Centerline rumble strips reduce head-on collisions and cross-over crashes by warning drivers whose vehicles are crossing center lines of two-lane, two-way roads. According to the Federal Highway Administration, centerline rumble strips reduce fatal and injury crashes by 38 to 50% on rural two-lane roads and by 37 to 91% on urban two-lane roads. Motorists can expect single-lane closures with delays from 5 to 10 minutes. No single lane closure will exceed two miles, but there may be multiple closures set up allowing the work convoy to continue while the previous closure is removed. Travel impacts for the week of June 24 will involve short-duration single lane closures, with delays of 5-10 minutes. The following tips are to help you stay safe while traveling through maintenance and construction work zones. Do not speed in work zones. Obey the posted speed limits. Stay Alert! Expect the unexpected. Watch for workers. Drive with caution. Don’t change lanes unnecessarily. Avoid using mobile devices such as phones while driving in work zones. Turn on headlights so that workers and other drivers can see you. Be especially alert at night while driving in work zones. Expect delays, especially during peak travel times. Allow ample space between you and the car in front of you. Anticipate lane shifts and merge when directed to do so. Be patient!
