Upcoming Road Work at SH-66 and US-36

Repaving to take place July 31 to August 1

American Civil Constructors, CDOT's contractor for the US-36 Lyons Bridges recovery projects, will be repaving the bridge deck at SH-66 and US-36 from Tuesday, July 31 to Wednesday, August 1, beginning at 7 a.m. At the request of the Town, work had been postponed last Friday and Monday, due to the festival.

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

Access Closure at Railroad Avenue and 5th Avenue

Beginning during the week of July 30, Railroad Avenue will be inaccessible to/from 5th Avenue, due to a CDOT drainage improvement project. Project managers anticipate the access to remain closed for a few weeks. During this time, the western block of Railroad will only be accessible from 4th Avenue. Traffic along 5th Avenue should not be impacted. 

Update: Recycling Center Moving to 2nd Avenue

Anticipated to move by mid-August

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; however, due to minor engineering setbacks, the Town now estimates the move to be complete by mid-August

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. 

*The availability and schedule of the cardboard-specific bin may vary during the relocation period. Updates will be sent as information is received. 

Art at River Bend

Art at River Bend

August 26 | 12 to 6 p.m.

Art at River Bend is a collaboration between the Boulder County Arts Alliance and the Lyons Arts and Humanities Commission.

This annual event is held along the North Saint Vrain Creek at River Bend, on Sunday, August 26 from 12 to 6 p.m. Dozens of artists of all mediums will have work for sale: paintings, photography, pottery, jewelry, fiber and more! The emphasis of this year's event is the sale of quality fine art. Previously, art selection was obtained through by open call-for-entries; this year, art featured at the event was hand-selected by invitation only.

Gourmet cheese selections and charcuterie will be provided by CURED, and libations from Spirit Hound Distillers will be available for purchase.


Volunteers are needed for this fun event! Contact Crystal Polis if you are available to help.
