Trough Road closure planned April 7, detour routes detailed
A portion of the Trough Road, or Eagle County Road 1, will be closed to vehicles at mile marker 3.6 for railroad crossing work on April 7.
The closure will be in effect from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Work is being performed by Union Pacific Railroad with traffic control assistance from Eagle County Road & Bridge and Grand County Road & Bridge.
Mile marker 3.6 is located approximately a half mile west of Rancho Del Rio. Drivers are asked to plan an alternate route during the closure, as no vehicles will be able to pass through the work zone. Eagle County Road & Bridge suggests the following alternate routes:
From Eagle County Road 1, take Highway 131 north to Highway 134.
From Highway 134, travel east to Highway 40.
Take Highway 40 south to Highway 9.
Take Highway 9 south to Eagle County Road 1.
