** This Post has been updated with new information about road closures. There will NOT be closures at railroad crossings next week as previously stated, but Hwy 72 WILL have closures from April 16th – 18th west of the railroad trestle for work by the Canyon Pines contractor.

LAST UPDATED: Tuesday April 16th – 16:06.

CCFD Received the following from HEI Civil who has been developing the land for the Canyon Pines neighborhood:

We are planning to cross the highway to install a storm culvert next week beginning April 16th. This will require us to close the highway overnight for 3 nights. Please see the below details.

Location – about 200 ft West of the Rail Road bridge on HWY 72

Duration – 3 Nights closure from 7:00pm – 6:00 am.

Detour – Will take travelers up through Nederland and Boulder to get back to the city.

** Note that the road will be opened for emergency response as quickly as possible.

For those needing to detour during the closures, canyon entrances and exits are described here: https://coalcreekcanyonfd.org/community-resources/#canyondriving** NOTE – Gross Dam Road is currently closed from the Denver Water building up to Flagstaff Rd, so that is not usable as a detour.
