Highlights

Buckhorn Creek Flood Event - CR 44H Repairs

On Friday evening July 15, 2022, areas within the Cameron Peak burn scar received an intense rainfall event causing severe flooding on Buckhorn Creek and Sheep Creek.  As a result of the flooding, CR 44H was severely damaged between mile markers 22 and 25.

Road and Bridge crews responded Friday night to assess the damage and began repairs Saturday morning July 16th.  Saturday afternoon the road was responded to by residents and emergency service providers.

Permanent repairs were started Monday July 18th and will continue for the next several weeks.  Crews will be working to reconstruct the roadway platform, reinstall rip rap protection and resurface the roadway through the damaged areas.

Questions should be directed to the Road and Bridge Department at 970-498-5650 or /contact?target=rab-admin@co.larimer.co.us.

Big Elk Meadows Road (CR 47) to be Reconstructed

Project No. 9332

(CR 47 Permanent Roadway Flood Repairs)

 

SCOPE OF WORK

The remaining work consists of rebuilding and paving 2 miles of CR 47 including three crossings of the West Fork of the Little Thompson River in lieu of damages caused during September 2013 flooding.  The goal is to re-pave these damaged portions of roadway, asphalt patch and overlay the remaining paved sections within the two miles of flood damage, construct the road back to the pre-flood elevation, and make the creek crossings more resilient during future high flow events while passing a 25-year storm event.  An asphalt patching and overlay project will also be completed using Larimer County funds for the remainder of the paved portion of CR 47 to the Johnny Park Fork.

Reconstruction/realignment work on County Road 47 from Highway 36 south approximately 900' occurred in 2015.  This portion was managed through a contract with the Federal Highway Administration, Central Federal Lands Highway Division (CFL). Traffic was diverted over the new bridge during the summer of 2015.  Larimer County contracted the paving of the first 900’ and guardrail placement at the new bridge.  This work is complete.

PROJECT STATUS

Larimer County has finalized and submitted environmental evaluations to the appropriate state and federal agencies in 2021.  The environmental reviews and approval processes are complete.

The project was advertised for bids on July 15th, 2021. The construction contract has been awarded to Dietzler Construction.  Construction on the three stream crossings has begun with traffic being diverted through a one-lane temporary traffic signalized operation.Paving will occur in mid-2022.

Project Budget: Larimer County is seeking federal (FEMA – 75%) and state (-DHSEM and a HUD Community Block Grant – each 12.5%) reimbursement for the proposed repairs. The construction cost estimate is $6,800,000.
