Fall Road Construction affecting Boulder Cyclists

51st Street Reconstruction, Jay Road to Boulder Reservoir – September 9 through November 1.

Boulder County’s contractor is scheduled to begin work on North 51st Street between Jay Road and the Boulder Reservoir on Monday. Work will include removing the top portion of asphalt and reconstructing the road back to its original 30-foot width. When complete, the project will provide a continuous 4-foot road shoulder on each side of the road and a reconstructed roadway along “old 51st Street" to improve the bicycle and pedestrian connection to the Jay Road / Highway 119 intersection.

Road users should expect on-going construction activity; a variety of pavement conditions including milled asphalt; shoulder drop-offs and delays during daytime construction hours. Work is anticipated to continue through November 1. Please reply to this email if you are interested in being added to the update list for this project.
