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.
