No. 7 - U.S. 36 Flood Repairs

Printer-friendly version

One of the most powerful fl oods in Colorado history was
followed by a rush of success as crews scrambled to get
major routes back open to traffi c. U.S. 36 was the first
mountain corridor to begin and complete emergency and
permanent repairs following the natural disaster. The first
phase of the project, completed in May, included the stabilization
of embankments above and below the highway
and near the river in addition to shifting the alignment of
U.S. 36 away from the body of water.
