While the canyon was closed between October 2016 and May 2017, crews blasted and removed rock to realign the highway through the Horseshoe curve area. An aerial view of the Horseshoe curve area shows where US 34 is being realigned between two rock faces to make it more resistant to flood damage. During the first closure of the canyon between October 2016 and May 2017, Kiewit crews blasted and hauled away more than 380,000 cubic yards of rock.

Local media outlets were given a tour of the canyon on May 23, 2017, to help them develop news stories to inform the public of the canyon's re-opening on Thursday, May 25. Though the US 34 canyon between Loveland and Estes Park will remain open for travel in the summer of 2017, work will continue off the roadway to build the new bridges through the Horseshoe curve.
