District 9-R vehicles not allowed to travel Red Mountain Pass

Road conditions, other drivers cited as reason
When motorists enter the Uncompahgre Gorge on the north side of Red Mountain Pass on U.S. Highway 550 near Ouray, there is danger from falling rocks and ice, and the road narrows with no guardrails or shoulder in places. Durango School District 9-R recently prohibited all district vehicles from traveling the pass.
The newly paved and reopened section of Red Mountain Pass south of Ouray where the Colorado Department of Transportation has intermittently disrupted traffic is just one part of a dangerous route that has prompted Durango School District 9-R to prohibit all school vehicles from traveling the pass on U.S. Highway 550 between Silverton and Ouray.
