Upcoming Road Work at SH-66 and US-36

Milling and repaving to begin on Thursday, July 26


American Civil Constructors, CDOT's contractor for the US-36 Lyons Bridges recovery projects, will be milling the bridge deck at SH-66 and US-36 on Thursday, July 26, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Work will be postponed over the weekend, picking back up on Tuesday morning, July 31, to complete milling and repaving.

This work will require traffic to be reduced to a single lane of alternating traffic through the work zone, likely resulting in congestion.

Fire Restrictions Lowered from Level 2 to Level 1

Lower temperatures and additional moisture have decreased fire danger


On Wednesday, July 25, Sheriff Joe Pelle lowered the fire restrictions that were in place for western Boulder County, from Level 2 to Level 1. While the rainfall and moisture in Boulder County has helped lower the fire danger, it was not enough to completely remove the fire ban, which is why Level 1 fire restrictions will continue to be enacted.


The Level 1 fire restrictions include the Town of Lyons and the mountain areas of Boulder County.

Due to construction for library, the Town and associated partners have begun preparation for relocating the recycling center (4th Ave. and Railroad) to the south side of the Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) center (198 2nd Ave.). Construction for the new ADA-accessible facility is well underway; the Town estimates the move to be complete by the week of July 23. 

The Town does not anticipate any lapse in availability in single-stream recycling* between locations - recycling will remain available at its current location, and a new dumpster will be replaced at the new site, upon its completion.
