Valmont Shoulders and Roadway Reconstruction - 75th Street to 95th Street

Photo of Valmont RoadThe Valmont Shoulders project is planned to reconstruct Valmont Road between 75th Street and 95th Street.  The need for the project is due to the lack of shoulders on the roadway, long-standing roadway safety issues, and a severely deteriorating pavement condition.

The current plan is to maintain the roads current alignment and two-lane configuration.  Some minor re-alignment may occur to accommodate the shoulder width, reduce impacts to agricultural properties, and to minimize the need for tree removal.  The project includes:

  • The addition of paved road shoulders to improve vehicle safety and provide space for bicycles.
  • Replace and upgrade ditch crossings and drainage culverts.
  • New pavement surface.
  • A new trail approach and trail crossing of the East Boulder Trail at Dry Creek.

Construction is scheduled to begin in early September 2011.  Updates on construction and potential closures will be posted along the road and sent out via email.
