A water main break has closed 1st Street/Highway 291 in downtown Salida between G Street to I Street.
This section of highway will be closed starting today and will remain closed through Thursday.
Local traffic can take Sackett Avenue and 2nd Street as alternate routes. Through traffic should use the Highway 285/50 route through Poncha Springs while Highway 291 is closed.
However, motorists will encounter delays on U.S. 50/285 in Poncha Springs this week.
Utility work will be performed just north of the 50/285 and West Poncha Avenue intersection. You can expect periodic stops and interruptions of the operation of the traffic light signal. A 10 foot width limit will be in place.
Motorists are urged to slow down and follow the direction of flagging personnel.
Dan attended Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas from 1978-82 (where he picked up the name Dan R after his fraternity brothers couldn’t pronounce his last name), majoring in Radio/Television. Dan lived in Jonesboro for 10 years working in radio and then was a TV weatherman for ABC affiliate KAIT Channel 8.
Television was a little boring when compared to radio, so Dan returned to hosting radio morning shows in Nashville, Memphis, Oklahoma, and then eventually, Colorado.
Dan enjoys being involved in the community, having been an member of the Upper Arkansas Service Club and is currently on the board of directors for the Salida Community Center and is a member of the Chaffee County Fair Committee.
Dan and his wife Carrie spend their days doing everything the mountains have to offer: hiking, camping, fishing and skiing. They raised 3 children together and have 2 grandchildren.
