Attn: Boulder County Cyclists!!
Neva Road and Niwot Road will be under construction between US36 (Foothills Highway) and North 63rd Street starting July 30 and lasting through the end of November.
Boulder County is reconstructing the roadway and adding four-foot shoulders to the entire length of road. The road is expected to remain open to all traffic including cyclists for the majority of the project, however cyclists should expect variable road surfaces including milled asphalt and dirt-road conditions; lane closures; and significant delays, when using this road for the duration of the project timeline. Some daytime road closures are anticipated.
Our current schedule has construction completed by the end of November. However weather may very well cause the final portions of the project to be delayed until Spring 2013. Once completed, road conditions should be significantly improved over the current situation. Our hope is that the addition of shoulders will make this route safer to use and more enjoyable for a broad range of cyclists and other road users.
Boulder County will be providing updates on construction as the project moves forward. Please reply to this email if you’d like to be added to that project specific email notification list.
Please use caution when riding and remember, "Courtesy is Contagious"!!!!
