SURVEY: Are you a Location Neutral Business or Agricultural Producer?

Routt County is conducting a county-wide business survey to hear from the community about the local business climate and business needs.  While we have a list of businesses that have employees and brick and mortar facilities, we’re hoping to expand our database to identify agricultural producers and location neutral business/workers who work from home or small offices and derive their income primarily from outside the county.  We need your help to ensure that we can draw a survey sample that represents the diversity of the Routt County economy.

If you are a location neutral business or an ag producer, please visit   to sign up by March 31.

For more information call Jane Blackstone at 970-875-6001.

Spring/Summer Road Construction Updates

At the January 22, 2015, Northwest Transportation Planning Region meeting,  updates were provided on two projects that might impact Hayden residents, CO Hwy 9 and Hwy 40 – Berthoud Pass.  Starting as early as April 2015 improvements to Hwy 9 will begin.  This project is scheduled to take three construction seasons, e.g. through 2017; however, the contractor is trying to move the project start in 2015 from July to April and only impact travelers for two construction seasons.  At this time be prepared for traffic delays on Hwy 9 in 2015 – 2017.  The second project is for avalanche protection and road surface improvements on Berthoud Pass scheduled for the 2015 construction season.  This project is scheduled to begin when snow and weather conditions permit.

If you are heading to I-70 you may want to take CO Hwy 131 to avoid construction delays.
