New lane striping eyed at North Road

As the result of a work session last week between county officials and Orchard City trustees, a proposed design for a new lane striping scheme at North Road and Highway 65 will be submitted to CDOT for approval.
The design is the work of county engineering and road and bridge department staff. The design is intended to accommodate loaded gravel trucks that one day will use the North Road/Highway 65 intersection as the principal haul route from the North Road gravel pit.

50J graduation rates top state averages

Data released last week by the Colorado Department of Education show graduation, completion and dropout rates are better than the statewide percentages, meeting the district’s goal to meet or exceed state averages on all assessments.
In Delta County, 81.6 percent of students graduated on time — by state criteria, within four years of completing eighth grade.
