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.”
