U.S. 34 Reconstruction Continues for a Couple More Weeks
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is working to complete repairs of Highway 34 between Loveland and Estes Park in advance of the summer tourist season.
Over the next couple of weeks, flaggers will be alternating one of lane of traffic through the work zones from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, for debris removal, shoulder work, striping, seeding, and other project completion work. Delays up to 10 minutes can be expected.
Throughout the duration of construction, cyclists are not permitted on U.S. 34 within the work zones, and several trail access points will be closed for safety. Other flood-impacted highways will remain open for cyclists, who ride at their own risk and are urged to ride using extra caution.
