Over the next several months, the City of Fort Collins will replace a bridge on Shields Street just south of Rolland Moore Park. Federal funding has been awarded to replace the bridge, and the City of Fort Collins is able to provide the required local funds through Keep Fort Collins Great tax revenue.

Beginning Tuesday, September 25th through June 2013, a construction cone zone will be in place on South Shields Street between Centre Avenue and Rolland Moore Drive.

In this area, travel on Shields will be reduced to one lane northbound and one lane southbound. You should use alternate routes when possible.

Construction Schedule

  • September 2012 to June 2013
  • Construction will occur in phases:
    • Phase 1 – Construct East Half of Bridge:  September 2012 to January 2013
      • Northbound lanes of Shields will be closed, and traffic will be diverted to the west side of Shields; one lane of travel will be open in each direction.
    • Phase 2 – Construct West Half of Bridge:  February 2013 to June 2013
      • Southbound lanes of Shields will be closed, and traffic will be diverted to the east side of Shields; one lane of travel will be open in each direction.
  • Work zone notes:
    • Lane closures will be static throughout each project phase.
    • Bicycles will be required to merge with automobiles in the work zone or follow signed detour routes to avoid traffic.
