Mudslide Mitigation Work Could Mean Delays On Highway 14 In Poudre Canyon

If you travel on Highway 14 in the Poudre Canyon (Northwest of Fort Collins), you might be in for some serious traffic delays in the coming months.  According to 9News, the Colorado Department of Transportation will be doing over 2-million dollars in work to prevent mudslides on the road in the High Park Fire burn-area.

9News says the plan is to build six new culverts to provide drainage under the highway because the culverts they have now keep getting clogged during heavy rainstorms and flooding the highway. Once the construction begins they hope to have it completed by January of 2014.

What kind of delays you ask?

We’ll be reducing State Highway 14 down to one lane for seven days a week 24 hours at a time.

That does not sound fun to sit through. Although, it will be better than having to close off highway 14 every time it rains due to flooding once this is all said and done. It will just be a gnarly few months for anyone that has to make that drive on a regular basis.

There is a a public meeting scheduled for anyone with questions about the construction for CDOT. It is scheduled for 6PM on Tuesday, Sept. 10th, 2013 at the Poudre Park Community Center.
