US 36 Lyons to Estes

Telephone Town Hall Recording

The Colorado Department of Transportation hosted a telephone town hall on Monday, June 30th, to discuss the details about Phase 2 of the US 36 permanent reconstruction following last September’s devastating floods. Click here to download and listen to the telephone town hall call.

Ongoing Travel Impacts

The delays and closures on US 36 greatly impact traffic, and CDOT strongly recommends the use of US 34 between Loveland and Estes Park, and SH 7 between Estes Park and Lyons as alternate routes for those who can use them. Throughout the duration of construction, cyclists will not be permitted on US 36 within the work zones, and several trail access points will be closed for safety reasons. Other flood-impacted highways will remain open for cyclists, who ride at their own risk and are urged to ride using extra caution.

The following delays should be expected on U.S. 36 between Lyons and Estes Park (weather permitting):

  • Monday, August 25, through Thursday, August 28:  15-30 minute delays 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. for grading and paving operations.
  • Friday, August 29:  15-30 minute delays 5:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for grading and paving operations.
  • Saturday, August 30, Sunday, August 31, and Monday, September 1: No work.
