Spring 2017 Permitted Travel Improvements

  • The decisions to operate two pilot cars and add one hour of permitted travel each day are being made in response to suggestions provided during the April open house meetings.

  • These changes only apply to the 2016/2017 closure that is scheduled to end Thursday, May 25.

  • The project team is able to implement these modifications now because we have advanced work during the current closure and determined these changes can be implemented without affecting CDOT's ability to open the canyon before the Memorial Day holiday.

  • These changes will be evaluated after the canyon re-opens, but we do not yet know if this same travel schedule will be used with the fall closure.

  • CDOT and Kiewit are currently looking at all other ideas the public has offered for improving access during the 2017/2018 closure, but the project team has yet to determine what suggestions, if any, might be implemented. That determination will be made in the summer of 2017.

  • In conjunction with our evaluation process, we invite you to share any feedback you might have about these revisions at [email protected].
