This project has been completed.

Riverside Drive at Cave Creek Culvert Replacement – Requires FULL ROAD CLOSURE

A new culvert will be installed at the Cave Creek crossing on Riverside Drive/CR 103, which is located just east of the intersection with Peak To Peak Highway/CO 72. This work will require a full closure of Riverside Drive at Cave Creek. Work will start at the end of March and the closure will begin on April 3 and last through July. All work is weather permitting. Residents of Riverside Drive west of Cave Creek (uphill) will need to use Peak to Peak Highway to access their properties. Residents of Riverside Drive east of Cave Creek (downhill) will need to use South St. Vrain Road/CO 7 to access their property. See map of the project location.

95th Street (Valmont to Lookout Road) Reconstruction and Flood Safety Improvements – Starts April 2024

95th Street between Valmont and Lookout roads will see significant construction activity starting in April 2024 and lasting through the year. The project will be completed in two phases. The first phase, which is the reconstruction of the roadway, will require daytime, weekday road closures. The second phase, which is the construction of a large new culvert system, will require a full roadway closure. Specific information is available on the project webpage. In addition, a new traffic signal and intersection configuration will be created at Lookout Road and 95th Street. This project will be undertaken at the same time as phase one of the 95th Reconstruction Project. Expect daytime, weekday lane shifts with short travel delays.
