Larimer County is releasing the preliminary results of the floodplain study in the Glen Haven area.
Larimer County is proposing to change Section 4.2.2 of the Larimer County Land Use Code to allow substantially damaged structures in the floodway to be re-built if damaged by something other than a flood.
Larimer County will open County Road 27 for traffic for the first time since the 2013 Flood!
Permanent repairs to the flood damaged roadway will continue through the winter. Riprap installation to help protect further erosion of slopes is underway.
Larimer County is working with FEMA to make permanent repairs to CR 44H. This reconstruction will provide a more flood resilient and safer roadway than what is currently in place.
The County Road 17 corridor from Vine Drive to Willox Lane in northwest Fort Collins has received federal funding for improvements to be constructed in 2015. Final design and right-of-way acquisition are complete and an Open House meeting is scheduled for November 18, 2014, to explain the project and update residents on the construction process.
Larimer County will be reconstructing portions of County Road 29 and 22H along the Big Thompson River at the Big Dam.
Flooding in September, 2013 impacted thousands of County residents. A major contributor to that impact was the devastating damage to much of the County road system. Temporary emergency repairs to reestablish access to properties in the affected areas have been ongoing over the winter months. Plans for permanent repairs are underway.
Larimer County has set two new benchmarks in the Glen Haven and Drake flood damaged areas to help property owners and surveyors doing work in the canyon:
Road Information Locator is a software application that gives you the ability to view the county’s roadway assets using a map (road ownership, road maintenance, signs, culverts, traffic count information, crash information, plus much more).
Interviews for the Engineering Intern positions have been completed. Job offers are being prepared.
