US 36 To Close For 3 Hours Wednesday, March 5
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), the Federal Highway Administration – Central Federal Lands Highway Division (CFLHD), and contractor American Civil Constructors, Inc. have scheduled the third of 20 different three-hour blasting operations for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 5, at mile marker 17.6 just west of Lyons. 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 just west of mile marker (MM) 17.6, which just west of Lyons and east of Pinewood Springs. Motorists will need to use alternate routes, especially via State Highway 7 between Lyons and Estes Park, as no through traffic will be allowed during the closure and major delays are expected!
