Culvert and road rehabilitation in upper Lefthand Canyon starts June 23

Delays up to 30 minutes can be expected on June 23 and 24; Shorter delays necessary until work completed

Boulder County, Colo. — Boulder County Transportation’s Maintenance Division will begin work to install a concrete culvert and conduct roadway and shoulder repair operations on upper Lefthand Canyon Drive just west of Sawmill Road on Tuesday, June 23. Construction operations will be conducted from 7 a.m. to approximately 4 p.m.Monday through Thursday, until mid-July, weather permitting.

During the first two days of construction, June 23 and 24, 30-minute travel delays for both motorists and cyclists can be expected. Travelers are encouraged to use alternate routes on these days. After June 24, Lefthand Canyon Drive will be reduced to one lane of traffic control-assisted access during working days and delays will be kept to a minimum. Access for emergency responders will be maintained at all times. The work zone will remain open for all users Friday through Sunday.

This project is in anticipation of planned roadway resurfacing work that will take place later this summer at a date to be determined. More information will be provided about that project as soon as dates and travel impacts are known.
