Official Communication from the Town of Lyons

Road Work Safety

Please drive slowly & cautiously through road work areas

Though the speed limit remains 40 to 50 mph on US-36, the Boulder County Sheriff's Office and Town Officials encourage traffic to drive slowly and cautiously through all areas of road work. 

Because US-36 is a state highway, local entities are not permitted to alter the speed limit. The Sheriff's Office and Town Staff recently sent CDOT a request for speed reduction through the work zones. If approved, the reduced speed will be put into effect immediately.

Thank you for helping our crews stay safe.
