Marshall Fire Impacts On Transportation

Community Living Icon

The Marshall Fire spread rapidly across Boulder County on December 30, causing massive destruction throughout parts of Louisville, Superior, and unincorporated Boulder County. This fire caused tremendous devastation throughout our community, including damages and destruction to over 1000 structures. The fire has inevitably impacted the usage and need of transit for all people in the affected communities.

Updates and resources about how fire has impacted transit throughout the affected areas are listed below.
