The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests have contracted for work to occur on the Lands' End Road from the forest boundary for 9.3 miles, up to the boulder fields. The work will improve the sight distance and reduce brushy vegetation for 20 feet on each side. Weather depending, work will take place Nov. 16-Dec. 15, six days a week.
The Lands' End Road will remain open to the public until the seasonal closure on Dec. 1. Citizens are asked to use caution and slow their speed for contractor and public safety.
On Dec. 2, officers of the Delta Police Department responded to a report of an assault. Officers spoke with a 64-year-old male with a bleeding injury on his neck.
