Highlights

County Road 44H (Buckhorn Road) Reconstruction Project

The County was on track to advertise the project for bids this spring after a full Environmental Assessment but FEMA just recently defunded the greater reconstruction project and will fund only improvements to bring the road back to pre-flood conditions plus some undetermined mitigation work. Revised plans will be presented to FEMA in May for review.  It’s unknown when construction may begin.

The 2013 flood event caused widespread damage and changes along waterways throughout the County and in other areas of the state. In response, the State of Colorado is taking steps towards bolstering long-term planning and resiliency efforts by funding the Colorado Hazard Mapping Program (CHAMP) that will update local hazard information including regulatory floodplain maps for the most affected waterways.

Draft floodplain boundaries for CHAMP Year 1 are now available on the Larimer County Flood Information Locator. The draft floodplain maps will also be presented at three open house meetings in October 2017. 

Special Transport (Oversize/Overweight) Permit Program

Larimer County’s current special transport permitting procedures have remained relatively unchanged since 1978.  We are updating our County permitting program to be more in-line with the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) oversize/overweight permitting system (COOPR) and regulations.

As the Larimer County community continues recovery efforts from the natural disasters of the last few years, private landowners are being asked to sign numerous documents.  The documentation needs are driven by the nature and location of the project as well as the funding source. One of the most common documents is a Right of Entry (ROE).
