Welcome to Alamosa County!

Our thriving community is home to over 15,000 residents. Alamosa is the commercial hub of the San Luis Valley and the gateway to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.

Equipped with prime agricultural land, innovative businesses in energy, industry, cultural heritage, and transportation, Alamosa County residents and visitors also enjoy access to some of Colorado's best wilderness and outdoor recreation. Our climate is perfect for the agricultural production of barley, potatoes, alfalfa, and with 350+ days of sunshine a year, we are one of the most productive locations for solar power plants in the U.S.

 We are in a Stage 1 Fire Ban until further notice. Started at 8:00 am May 9th.


Lane 6 North Construction

**UPDATED** - Summer Route Closure of Lane 6 N between Mosca and Great Sand Dunes NPP begins June 6, 2022

The project will impact traffic on Lane 6 between CO Hwy 17 and CO Hwy 150 and eliminate through access beginning June 6 and continuing to September 1, 2022. The project is divided into East and West sections and each section will experience full closure of both lanes 24 hours per day as noted below. During this period, visitors to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve should avoid Lane 6 and instead detour south to US Hwy 160. 

Partial route access will only be as far as the San Luis Lakes State Wildlife Area (an 8-mile stretch of the road) for travelers accessing the SWA and only accessible for local access. Local access is defined as local private property owners living along Lane 6 and federal property owners (areas not publicly accessible, administrative use only). All users (travelers and local access) accessing any portions of Lane 6 should expect delays up to 30 minutes.
