This is the home of the Gold Run Road (Salina) and Gold Creek Flood Recovery Project. Work will start in September 2017 and will last until October 2018. All work is weather dependent. Project plans
Boulder County and SEMA Construction hosted a community meeting on Sept. 14 to talk about the permanent flood recovery work in Salina on Gold Run Road and in Gold Creek, which will start Monday, Sept. 18. At the meeting, attendees asked to see the current tree removal plans:
- Current Tree Removal Plan Set – All trees identified in the plans will be verified in the field by the engineering team. Boulder County will do it’s best to protect all tress and mitigate any removal.
- Revegetation Plan Set for Stream Work
- Revegetation is planned for both the road and creek portions of the work.

Anticipated Project Phasing:
The contractor (SEMA) plans to start with survey work and equipment mobilization on Sept. 18, 2017. Soon after, SEMA will begin stream recovery operations in the upper reaches of the project area and will proceed downhill. Within a few weeks of starting the stream work, SEMA’s road crew will begin operations where stream work has started and follow the stream work downhill.
Stream work must be complete by Dec. 21, 2017 per funding source agreements.
Specific information on roadwork will be posted here as it becomes available.
Travel plans are currently being finalized, but the contractor believes most of the work can be completed without the need to fully close the road. Gold Run Road will be reduced to a single lane in multiple locations at various times during the project. Flaggers will be used to move people safely around active construction zones. If a lane closure is required overnight, temporary traffic signals will be placed in the roadway.
More information on travel impacts will be posted here as it becomes available.
