Travel Update Hwy 36 to Estes Park

Dear Guests, 

In preparation for our first guest arrival of the 2014 Season, I wanted to provide some travel information on the current US Hwy 36 Road Reconstruction Project.

US Hwy 36 is single lane in both directions in many places between Lyons, and Estes Park, Colorado. Travelers should expect major delays and possible temporary closures.  

CDOT strongly recommends the use of US 34 between Loveland and Estes Park, and State Hwy 7 between Estes Park and Lyons as alternate routes for those who can use them. 

Travel Safely!

With especially hard hit areas along highway 36 to Lyons, and highway 34 to Loveland.
