Telluride / Mountain Village Reliability Project Begins

Last year, over President’s Day weekend, Telluride and Mountain Village were without power. To improve service reliability in the area, San Miguel Power Association is building a redundant underground power line. This construction will cause delays and closures on Ilium Road and the Galloping Goose trail from the 2nd week of April until mid-October. The road and trail will be open on weekends and during major festivals.

Details about road and trail closures will be determined as work progresses. Work is beginning as of April 10.

- Motorists should watch for lane closures on Ilium Road by the end of this week.

- There may be temporary road closures on Ilium starting mid next week (April 19th).

- Trail work will begin in mid-late May.

The latest dates and details are available at Call (970) 626-5549 ext. 212 to ask questions.
