The Town of Hotchkiss will be repairing a sewage line this week which will require the closure of Highway 92 at the west end of town, at the intersection of Bridge Street and Pinyon Drive.
Work will begin Wednesday, Nov. 15, and continue through Friday, Nov. 17. Although access to businesses will remain open, the intersection will be closed day and night during construction. Motorists are advised to be aware and follow the detour signage around the affected area.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
