Welcome to SMPA



San Miguel Power Association (SMPA) is submitting a proposed Hwy 550 road closure schedule to CDOT for permitting.  Morning and afternoon road closures are planned on Hwy 550 for Aug 9 - 13, Aug 16 - 20, Sep 13 - 17, and Sep 20 - 24. This schedule was developed with input from local community, business, emergency management, and county representation.  Please plan your travel accordingly.  
This vital infrastructure project will reduce the risk of wildfires, improve electrical reliability and extend the local middle mile fiber optic network.
