Overlay project on Baseline and Cherryvale

Overlay project on Baseline and Cherryvale roads starts Sept. 26
Expect delays; Avoid construction zone, if possible

Boulder County, Colo. – Boulder County’s Transportation Department will begin an asphalt overlay project on Wednesday, Sept. 26 on Baseline and Cherryvale roads. The Baseline project will take place between the Boulder city limits and Cherryvale Road, and the Cherryvale project will take place between Baseline Road and Baseline Road. Work will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and is expected to last until mid-to-late October, weather permitting.

During construction, travel will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic in both directions. Traffic control personnel will be used to safely move motor vehicles and cyclists through the work area. Travelers can expect short delays. During non-working hours, both lanes will be reopened, but road conditions in the construction zone may be less than ideal as the top layers of asphalt will be removed, so please use caution when moving through the area. Boulder County will do its best to ensure safe travel for all modes throughout the project’s duration.

Access to the Bobolink Trailhead will be maintained, but there may be delays entering and exiting the parking lot when equipment is moving in front of the road. Access to Gapter Road will also be maintained except when equipment is moving in front of the intersection with Baseline Road. Access to Gapter Road will be maintained at all times from Dimmit Drive off of Cherryvale Road.

Overlay operations rehabilitate roads by milling off the old road surface and applying a new layer of asphalt. The road will also be restriped after paving operations are complete. While Boulder County Transportation and its contractors strive to complete all projects on-time, work is weather dependent and there may be delays due to unfavorable working conditions.
