CO 52 Closed Near Tri-Town Area due to Collapsed Culvert

Aug. 16, 2018 - Closure will be Extensive; Local Detours in Place

Colorado Highway 52 has been shut down in both directions at mile point 15, east of Dacono and Frederick, due to a collapsed culvert.

CDOT crews are working on fixing the problem and setting up a local detour around the damage. The detours are expected to be in place until the culvert can be repaired. No estimate for repair is available until crews can determine the best repair.

CO 52 is a busy route, connecting I-25 and US 85 through Dacono and Fort Lupton. The local detours for the closure will add approximately 5 minutes to your commute.
