Lane shifts and
reduced speeds will be in place between 61st and 75th

Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder
County Transportation will begin permanent repairs on Valmont Road east of 61
Street at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, April 11. To safely accommodate the project, the
contractor will shift traffic and reduce speeds to 25 mph around the
construction zone. Work will take place between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday
through Friday.

the 2013 Flood, the north side of Valmont Road failed in this area due to the
extreme amount of water that was present. The project’s goal is to shift the
road to the south and away from the slope on the north side. Work should be
complete by mid-May. Please use caution and comply with the reduced speed limit
when traveling through the area. In addition, be aware of cyclists who may also
be moving through the zone.
