95th Street Reconstruction – Lookout to Plateau

95th Street Reconstruction Project - Lookout Road to Plateau Road

PAVING – OCT. 28 to NOV. 15 – EXPECT LONG DELAYS

The contractor will be completing the final top layer of the new roadway from Monday, Oct. 28 to Friday, Nov. 15, weather permitting. Delays on 95th Street could reach up-to 15-minutes. Delays at cross-streets (Plateau, Oxford, Niwot, SH 52, and Lookout) will be long (up-to 30-minutes) when paving equipment is moving through the intersection. Alternate routes are advised between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Background

Boulder County Transportation is currently rebuilding 95th Street between Lookout Road and Plateau Road (Longmont city limit). The project entails widening the road to increase shoulder widths (five-foot shoulder on each side), rebuilding the subsurface to increase resiliency, and creating a new asphalt roadway surface. Work is expected through November 2019.

Travel Impacts

Motorists and cyclists can expect to see daytime, weekday lane reductions so the contractor can work on one side of the road. Work zone locations will vary and there may be two sites under construction at the same time between Plateau and Lookout roads. Oftentimes, the road surface will be gravel or milled asphalt (rough). Travelers will be safely escorted around the work zone by traffic control (flagging) personnel, so expect delays. There will also be delays on SH 52, Niwot Road, and Oxford Road when construction operations are moving through their intersections with 95th Street.Alternate roads are highly encouraged (US 287 and SH 119/Diagonal). Cycling is discouraged during working hours.

  • Working Hours = 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Monday through Friday
    • Some Saturday work may be allowed to help construction progress
