Lee Hill Drive and Deer Trail Road Reconstruction Project

Lee Hill Drive/Deer Trail Road Reconstruction Project

Project Background

Boulder County Transportation is planning to reconstruct Lee Hill Drive from Olde Stage Road to Deer Trail Road and Deer Trail Road from Lee Hill Drive to the end of pavement.

The project, as currently planned, will have two phases:

Phase I – July 9 to October/November 2018

  • Culvert Replacement at Six Mile Creek/Reed’s Corner – COMPLETE
  • Concrete Drainage Pan Installation – Begins Monday, Aug. 27, 2018 – A contractor will install 1,000 feet of concrete curb and gutter between Olde Stage Road and “Windy Point” to protect the pavement from water runoff and rock falls. The area between the concrete curb and edge of the travel lane will be paved, which will create a paved shoulder that improves safety for all roadway users.
    • Travel Impacts
      • Flaggers will be used to direct traffic safely around active work zones, so there will be short delays
        • 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Monday through Friday
        • Through October 2018

Reed's Corner on Lee Hill Drive

Phase II – Summer 2019

  • Lee Hill Drive Repaving – Lee Hill Drive has not be repaved in over 20 years. Paving will take place between Olde Stage Road and Deer Trail Drive.
  • Deer Trail Drive Repaving – Deer Trail was first paved in 1982 during the development of the Boulder Heights subdivision, and its condition has severely deteriorated. The work will require reconstruction of most of the roadway. This work is funded by the county’s subdivision paving program.
  • Guardrail Replacement – All guardrail along Lee Hill and Deer Trail drives will be replaced and brought up to current standards.

Construction Schedule

This is a large, multifaceted and phased project that is anticipated to take place over two years – June 11, 2018 to June 2020.

Public Meetings

An open house was held on May 22, 2018 to discuss the project and travel impacts – Meeting Exhibits
