Expect delays; Avoid construction zone, if possible

Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder
County’s Transportation Department will begin an asphalt overlay project on

construction, travel will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic in both
directions. Traffic control personnel will be used to safely move motor
vehicles and cyclists through the work area. Travelers can expect short delays.
During non-working hours, both lanes will be reopened, but road conditions in
the construction zone may be less than ideal as the top layers of asphalt will
be removed, so please use caution when moving through the area. Boulder County
will do its best to ensure safe travel for all modes throughout the project’s

to the Bobolink Trailhead will be maintained, but there may be delays entering
and exiting the parking lot when equipment is moving in front of the road. Access
to Gapter Road will also be maintained except when equipment is moving in front
of the intersection with Baseline Road. Access to Gapter Road will be
maintained at all times from Dimmit Drive off of Cherryvale Road.

operations rehabilitate roads by milling off the old road surface and applying
a new layer of asphalt. The road will also be restriped after paving operations
are complete. While Boulder County Transportation and its contractors strive to
complete all projects on-time, work is weather dependent and there may be
delays due to unfavorable working conditions.
