Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County, in partnership with Weld County, is currently working on designs for widening East County Line Road (ECLR)/Weld County Road 1 (WCR 1) between Quicksilver and Pike roads. The project currently includes the installation of a roundabout at the intersection of ECLR and Weld County Road 20.5. Roadway improvements include the addition of a seven-foot wide paved, buffered shoulder in both the northbound and southbound lanes of ECLR and a new drainage structure for Dry Creek #2.

Boulder County Public Works will host a public meeting to share preliminary designs, collect feedback, and answer questions from attendees:
