A public meeting on the US 34 permanent repairs will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20, at Ellis Ranch in Loveland. The meeting will clarify the construction schedule and traffic impacts for the project, which begins in August and will continue through June 2017. The meeting includes a formal presentation on summer construction activities and traffic control plans starting in October, followed by a question-and-answer session. The meeting will not address the specifics of the permitting process for canyon residents or the detailed schedule for fall construction. Information on those two topics will be available in September.

Construction on US 34 in the Big Thompson Canyon begins in August with short-duration lane closures and traffic stops for rock-blasting between mile point 77 (just east of Drake) and mile point 80 (in the Cedar Cove area). The delays will be limited to intermittent closures of 20-30 minutes.

From late October through June 2017, through-traffic will not be permitted in the canyon. Only canyon residents and emergency services will have access through a permitting process. Travel on US 34 will be allowed east of mile point 80 and west of mile point 77. The detour route for travel between Estes Park and Loveland will be US 36 and CO 66.
