Jay Road resurfacing project starts April 12

Expect travel delays between US 36 and CO 119


Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County Public Works and its contractor, Asphalt Specialties, will begin a roadway resurfacing project on Jay Road between US 36/28th Street and CO 119/Diagonal Highway (map) on Monday, April 12. Work will take place between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The project is anticipated to last through June, weather permitting.

During working hours, travelers can expect delays in both directions as the road will be reduced to one lane, often in multiple locations. During paving operations, delays at intersections along Jay Road will be longer, up-to 30 minutes, as the asphalt must be allowed to cool before bikes and vehicles can safely ride or drive on the surface. After the road is milled, the surface will be in a less than ideal condition, so please obey posted speed limits and drive safely. Cyclists and pedestrians may be asked to merge with motor vehicle traffic when there isn’t room to accommodate a designated pathway.

In addition to paving, the island at 30th Street on Jay Road will be repositioned to better align with the road. Bus stops will be replaced and improved. Current transit stops along Jay Road will be temporarily relocated to accommodate the construction. Drainage will also be reworked in a few locations to help prevent water from pooling on the road.
