Cottonwood Pass after two years of being closed due to construction will reopen June 22nd, 2019. According to sources in Gunnison County, the contractor would move in mid-April and begin to plow snow so they could get in and finish the project. Their contract shows an ending date for the project in mid-July.
When it opens it will be alternating one lane traffic just line on any highway project when there is paving. This date may change due to the massive amounts of snow still in the high country.
