CDOT to Host Telephone Town Hall for CO 119 Boulder Canyon Project

March 14, 2019 - Northeastern Colorado - Ask your questions on Thursday, March 21, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

BOULDER – As crews prepare to begin extensive flood repair work on CO 119, between Boulder and Nederland, The Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor Zak Dirt Inc. will host a Telephone Town Hall on Thursday, March 21, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. to inform the community about the project.

This meeting was originally scheduled for March 13, but was re-scheduled to March 21 due to the blizzard.

An automated system will call and invite a random set of residents in the City of Boulder and in the Town of Nederland to join the call. Anyone who does not receive a call but still wants to participate may dial 877-229-8493, then enter PIN 112034#.  

During the call residents, commuters and business owners will have the opportunity to hear details about the upcoming reconstruction project. All interested individuals are encouraged to call and learn about the improvements planned along the canyon. The project team will be prepared to answer questions about the project schedule, traffic impacts & expected delays, rock blasting activities and trail closures. Callers can also sign up to receive project updates and are encouraged to ask questions to the project management team about the work.

This is an almost 2-year long project. The impacts to CO 119 and the travelling public will be significant. Work will begin in late March and is expected to be completed in the Fall of 2020.
