COLFAX –– A fresh crop of survey markers have sprouted in fields along state Highway 26 between Dusty and Colfax in preparation of adding four passing lanes.

According to the state Department of Transportation, the $11.5 million project includes four truck-climbing lanes to “address the platooning of vehicles behind slow-moving trucks.”

The project would install two westbound and two eastbound lanes between Dusty and Colfax.

Design on the project began last year and construction is set to begin the summer of 2021. Completion is anticipated for late 2022.
