Big Elk Meadows Road (CR 47) to be Reconstructed

Project No. 9332

(CR 47 Permanent Roadway Flood Repairs)

Last Updated: December, 2018

 

SCOPE OF WORK

The remaining work consists of rebuilding and paving CR 47 including 3 creek crossings 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.  Coordination with the United States Forest Service (USFS) is ongoing as most of CR 47 is on USFS owned land.  The design of the three permanent creek crossings and roadway improvements is moving forward.  Application for various environmental clearances began in the Spring 2017.

Construction timelines can be better estimated once final plans have been submitted, reviewed, and approved by state and federal agencies.  The preliminary design package was submitted to those groups in May 2017 and comments were received in August 2017.  The design team is currently addressing those comments prior to preparing the final design package.

Project Budget: Preliminary Cost Estimate = $7,500,000; Larimer County is seeking federal (FEMA) and state reimbursement for the proposed repairs.
