CR 72 Reconstruction and Widening Project 335


The project includes 3 miles of roadway widening, reconstruction, and paving of the existing gravel portions of CR 72 from US Highway 287 to CR 21.  The two-lane roadway will accommodate 8 feet wide paved shoulders matching the previously reconstructed phases to the east of CR 21.  Re-alignment of CR 72 at the US Highway 287 approach is proposed with this phase.  Re-striping of Hwy 287 at the CR 72 intersection is also proposed to allow for an exclusive northbound acceleration and deceleration lane on and off of Hwy 287.


Larimer County hired an engineering consulting firm, Interwest Consulting Group, in late 2019 to design and prepare construction plans.

Design and right-of-way acquisitions are complete.  Construction began in April 2021 and will be complete in the Fall of 2021.  Connell Resources has been awarded the construction contract.  Two lane traffic will be maintained during construction.

The final design can be viewed on the Larimer County website:

Project Budget: $6.4 million is the construction estimate.  The project will be funded entirely by Larimer County.

County Road 37 (Red Mountain Rd) Resurfacing Project


The Road and Bridge Department is working on a project to improve and surface CR 37 (Red Mountain Rd) in its entirety from the Colorado/Wyoming state line to US Highway 287. This section of road is currently a native surface and will receive a six-inch layer of aggregate base course. The project will include improvements to the roadside drainage, replacement of several drainage culverts, snow fence, minor width and horizontal alignment improvements along with the import and placement of approximately 50,000 tons of aggregate base course. 


Road and Bridge crews have continued to work on the resurfacing of CR 37 through the 2020/2021 winter.  Culvert installation is complete, drainage and earthwork are approximately 1 mile from completion and the aggregate surfacing is approximately 3 miles from completion of the planned 9.7 miles.  Final completion is anticipated to be December 2021.

County Road 44H (Buckhorn Road) Reconstruction Project


From the end of the asphalt west of County Road 27 to Ballard Road (Forest Road 129) the grade of County Road 44H will be raised to pre 2013 flood elevation.  The entire 10.13 mile length will be surfaced with a 6 inch depth of road base.  The road will remain on its present alignment and not impact Buckhorn Creek.  However, the first six culvert crossings of the Buckhorn Creek west of CR  27 will be replaced with concrete box culverts ranging in size from 25’x8’ to 15’x7’.  The existing 84” culvert approximately 0.4 east of Ballard Road will be extended a few feet on each end.

Construction Budget:  Approximately $7,300,000. 


Final approval for the project was given by FEMA in September 2020.  The project has been bid and awarded to Flatiron Constructors and work began on the project in early January 2021.  Work is underway.  All of the concrete box culverts have been completed and work has begun to haul in the fill material to bring the road back to pre-flood elevations.  Once that is complete, the gravel will be hauled in to complete the final grading.  The project is anticipated to be complete in the fall of 2021.

We realize there will need to be coordination between the county and property owners in the area who are working to clean up and rebuild as a result of the 2020 Cameron Peak Fire.  Please contact either Rusty McDaniel (contact info listed below) or the Jason Fagette, the construction manager for the project to schedule various work events.  Jason can be reached at 970-459-0376.

Project No. 333 - CR 27 (Masonville Bridge)


Design of the replacement Masonville Bridge over the Buckhorn Creek is complete. The existing bridge is functionally obsolete and with increase in traffic volumes over the years the narrow bridge has become a safety issue. The project was awarded to Mountain Constructors and construction is underway.

Project Budget:  $1,750,000


The construction contract was awarded to Mountain Constructors. For further information the following virtual “open house” has been created: and will be updated as needed.

Construction is underway. Construction of an on-site detour is complete. Traffic control will be updated locally and on RESS for any changes to traffic patterns. No full closure is required. Work is expected to continue through the end of July..
