Lee Hill Drive reduced to one lane of alternating traffic through July

Expect delays when traveling through the area

Boulder County contractors have begun installing retaining walls on Lee Hill Drive just west of the Boulder city limits. In order to accommodate the work, Lee Hill Drive will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through July.  

The work is part of recovery efforts stemming from the 2013 flood event. The project’s goal is to construct a large retaining wall along the portion of the road that runs next to Fourmile Canyon Creek. This work will prevent the roadway from being destroyed should it collapse into the creek, which would result in large recovery effort and a much longer construction timeframe.

During weekday construction hours, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., traffic will be flagged through the construction zone. During off-work hours, traffic will be controlled by an electronic stop light. Should the stop light fail, please call 303-819-4437 and Boulder County Transportation staff will work to repair the issue immediately. 

Boulder County is making every effort to complete the project on-time, but all work is weather dependent. 

For more information on the project, contact Andrew Barth, Transportation Department communications specialist, at abarth@bouldercounty.org or call 303-441-1032.
