Mulberry Frontage Road Relocation

Project No. 314

(SH14/Greenfields Ct. Frontage Road Relocation and Connection)

Last Updated:  April, 2018

 

SCOPE OF WORK

The State Highway 14/Greenfields intersection is the first full movement signalized intersection on SH 14 west of I-25.  Larimer County was awarded Responsible Acceleration of Maintenance and Partnerships (RAMP) funds in the amount of $1,680,000 from CDOT with a match amount for $420,000.  This project realigns the frontage roads on both the north and south side of SH 14 to allow safer movement between the frontage road and the mainline in keeping with adopted plans for the area.  Additionally, this will construct a missing connection on the south frontage road.  CDOT has agreed to retain maintenance of the frontage road upon completion of the project.

Big Elk Meadows Road (CR 47) to be Reconstructed

Project No. 9332

(CR 47 Permanent Roadway Flood Repairs)

Last Updated: April, 2018

 

SCOPE OF WORK

The remaining work consists of rebuilding and paving 2 miles of CR 47 including three crossings of the West Fork of the Little Thompson River in lieu of damages caused during September 2013 Flooding.  The goal is to make the repaired sections and crossings more resilient during future high flow events.

Reconstruction/realignment work on County Road 47 from Highway 36 South approximately 900' began in mid-2015.  This portion was managed through a contract with the Federal Highway Administration, Central Federal Lands Highway Division (CFL). Traffic was diverted over the new bridge during the summer of 2015.  Larimer County contracted the paving of the first 900’ and guardrail placement at the new bridge.  This work is complete. 

PROJECT STATUS

Aerial surveying of CR 47 was conducted during the Fall of 2014.  Larimer County also hired an engineering consulting firm, Interwest, in 2014 to design and prepare construction plans.  The preliminary design package was submitted to state and federal agencies in May 2017 for review. 

Further design of the three permanent creek crossings and roadway improvements has been suspended pending an appeal of FEMA’s recent funding determination and/or a second scope change request for additional funds. Larimer County is in the process of determining what type of repairs and funding will be eligible for reimbursement from FEMA and State agencies.

Construction timelines can be better estimated once final plans have been submitted, reviewed, and approved by state and federal agencies. However, construction is not anticipated to begin in 2018.

Project Budget: Larimer County is seeking federal (FEMA – 75%) and state (Office of Emergency Management and a HUD Community Block Grant – each 12.5%) reimbursement for the proposed repairs.  Preliminary Project Cost Estimate = $7,500,000; FEMA’s recent funding determination only allows approximately $3,000,000.
