From CDOT -
"The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration - Central Federal Lands Highway Division (CFLHD) are combining expertise and resources to design and construct the final repairs on US 36 between Lyons and Estes Park following the devastating 2013 flood. Work on the emergency repairs is now underway."
"Construction activities should be anticipated 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m., and again from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., delays will be minimal to accommodate the morning and evening commutes. Between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. crews will be working on the roadway, and a typical one hour stop should be expected at any given time. On weekends, work will take place throughout the day, but stop times will be kept to 30 minutes, although night work is possible. Either a pilot car or flaggers will escort motorists through the construction zone for safety purposes. Crews will try to avoid all work on major holidays, but work will take place on weekends and evenings."
"Several planned, multi-hour closures will take place throughout the project to allow for more large-scale blasting activities. Seven days of advanced notice will be provided to allow motorists to plan ahead accordingly. Altogether, there will be 20 different three hour full closures, 10 different two hour full closures, and 10 different night time full closures. The night time full closures will last from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m."
"The delays and closures on US 36 will greatly impact traffic, and CDOT is strongly recommending the use of US 34 between Loveland and Estes Park, and SH 7 between Estes Park and Lyons as alternate routes for those who can use them."
Repairs will be ongoing through winter 2014.
