Expect delays on 75th Street, S. Heatherwood Drive, and Ashfield Drive in Gunbarrel through early November.

Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County Transportation will begin a pedestrian access improvements project on 75th Street at South Heatherwood Drive at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept.11. The project will require lane closures on 75th Street, so travelers can expect daytime, weekday delays.

The project includes:

  • A new pedestrian crossing on Ashfield Drive at S. Heatherwood Drive.
  • Sidewalk and corner ramp improvements.
  • Enhancements of the culvert on the east side of 75th at S. Heatherwood.

The project is being complete with help from a Safe Routes to School Program grant. For more information, visit the project website or contact Andrew Barth at email or call 303-441-1032.
