Hwy 7 Construction

An excess of spring storms across the state have created delays in road construction, including the resurfacing project on Colorado Highway 7 in Estes Park. Crews from Flatiron Constructors and the Colorado Department of Transportation are working diligently to stay on schedule.

Starting Sunday, June 9, and throughout the week, night work to install drainage pipes about a half mile north of Lily Lake will begin after 7 p.m. Travelers can expect up to 40-minute delays with one-lane closures from approximately one mile south of Mary’s Lake to one mile north of Lily Lake, due to narrow road conditions.


Work on this project began last spring and will go through October.

Normal working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. In special cases, these hours may be extended such as the night work beginning next week.
