2023 Drainage Woes

The unusually wet and rainy summer has been a double-edged sword for Larimer County roads – while the moisture, brilliant vegetation, and low fire danger has been welcome – the subsequent drainage and run-off issues have left quite a few Larimer County roads with damage. Our crews have been working to repair erosion damage on and along many of our roads – in some cases only to have the new repairs damaged by another hard rain.  While most of the heavier damage occurred in the foothills and the mountains, we also have a bit of roadside damage along some of our lower elevation roads.

Roads that are within the Cameron Peak burn scar have been the hardest hit; we are still performing repair work on portions of CR 44H (Buckhorn Rd) and CR 43 (Devils Gulch). We expect this work to be complete by the end of October.

Throughout the fall and winter, we will also be repairing shoulders and roadside drainages along roads throughout the County including but not limited to – CR 19 north of Vine (Taft Hill), CR 23 (Centennial Dr), CR 80C (Cherokee Park Rd), CR 27 (Lower Buckhorn), etc.








County Road 70 (Owl Canyon Road) & County Road 9 Roadway Improvements

Project No. 339

(CR 70 (Owl Canyon Road) between CR 9 and CR 5 & CR 9 from CR 70 to the new Larimer County North Landfill


Last Updated: August, 2023


The project includes 1.5 miles of roadway widening and reconstruction of CR 70 from the CR 9 intersection to just west of I-25. The project also includes 4 miles of roadway widening of CR 9 from the CR 70 intersection to the new Larimer County North Landfill entrance. Both roadway widening projects will accommodate two lanes of roadway and 6- to 8-foot-wide paved shoulders. Bridges will be replaced at several irrigation canal crossings and major/minor drainage ways. Intersection improvements are planned for both the C9 and CR 7-5J intersections. Along with the roadway widening on CR 9 conduits for the County’s Broadband infrastructure extensions are being installed.  In addition to the above improvements CR 70 will also be repaved on the I-25 overpass and the gravel road section from I-25 to CR 5 will be paved to accommodate a 26’ paved roadway.


The project was advertised for construction bids and awarded to Connell Resources in late May for amount of $20,994,658. Connell began mobilization efforts in early July and is expected to begin earth moving/road widening activities on CR 9 by the end of July. They will be starting their fence relocation and tree removal efforts in the meantime as well as start hauling dirt from site borrow sources to begin construction of temporary detour roads. Utility relocation efforts have been ongoing over the last several months and will continue thru the end of the year and into 2024.

The project is funded through a combination of Larimer County Road and Bridge, Larimer County Solid Waste, Larimer County IT, and CDOT funds.

County Road 8 and County Road 21 Intersection Improvements

Project No. 336



The safety of the intersection at CR 8 and CR 21 has steadily declined with an increasing number of accidents over the past several years.  CR 8 serves as an important route for traffic traveling both east and west, and continued growth in the region has made it imperative to provide a solution that addresses safety and efficiency at the intersection. Alternative designs have been analyzed to accomplish this while minimizing impacts on adjacent landowners, and a roundabout design has emerged as the preferred alternative. Improvements to the intersection will be fully funded by local County capital improvement funds.

Project Budget:  $3.2 million


Project design and right-of-way acquisitions are complete. Utility work is nearly complete and construction is underway. Construction is expected to be complete by the spring of 2024.
