According to Boulder County's website Lefthand Canyon has lifted the cycling restriction from Hwy 36 to Lee Hill road. This new route will open up the popular Lefthand - Lee Hill - Ole Stage route. Lots of work is still left to be done to complete and re-open the route to Jamestown. The county has been working hard to keep their Road Closure page updated so according to some we have spoke to, if the road isn't mentioned on their page than the road is open to cyclists.

Weekday cycling restrictions in Lefthand Canyon from U.S. 36 to Lee Hill Road will be lifed February 28. Most of the heavy hauling operation in Lefthand Canyon has concluded, but construction can be expected for several more weeks in an effort to complete a winter road in James Canyon and Balarat. James Canyon remains restricted to local access only until construction is complete. Cyclists are urged to be aware of construction traffic and other matenance activities in the area.
