Fourmile Canyon Drive cycling restrictions lifted
Flood recovery project suspended until spring
Boulder County, Colo. - Daytime, weekday cycling restrictions in place on Fourmile Canyon Drive and Gold Run Road due to heavy construction activity have been lifted. The remaining flood recovery-related construction has been suspended until temperatures are more suitable to complete the remaining work, most likely in May 2020. When work resumes, cycling restrictions are unlikely to be reinstituted.
After work resumes in the spring, a majority of the remaining effort will focus on removing the old asphalt and repaving the road. Other activities include: revegetation and landscaping, stream restoration, guardrail installation, and retaining wall veneers. There will still be trucks and equipment on the road, but the volume of activity will be greatly diminished. This work is anticipated to last into July.
Boulder County thanks everyone for their patience and understanding while we’ve worked to complete the last major flood-recovery related reconstruction project in the county.
