US 36 To Close For 3 Hours, Feb. 24
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration – Central Federal Lands Highway Division (CFLHD) have scheduled the second of 20 different three-hour blasting operations for noon to 3 p.m., Monday, February 24, at mile marker 17.6. Timing of this blasting event was determined to ensure passage for afternoon school bus routes. The blasting is part of the US 36 Emergency Flood Reconstruction project between Lyons and Estes Park.
The blasting will require full stops of both directions of traffic for three hours near mile marker (MM) 17.6, which is also west of Pinewood Springs and southeast of Estes Park. Motorists will need to use alternate routes, especially via State Highway 7 between Lyons and Estes Park, as no through traffic will be allowed through during the closure and major delays are expected!
