Boulder County next week will begin final repairs on the first half-mile of Sugarloaf Road that was damaged during the 2013 flood.

After the 2013 flood, Boulder County installed temporary retaining walls to support the section of the road, just up from Colo. 119.

This will now be made permanent, according to a county news release.

In addition to building five new walls, the project, expected to last until October, will include drainage improvements and a complete resurfacing of the construction zone to include a new 4-foot-wide shoulder in the uphill lane, the county release states.

Starting May 2, traffic on the first half-mile of Sugarloaf Road will be reduced to one lane 24 hours a day, seven days a week throughout most of the project.

During weekday working hours, 8 a.m. to to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, Colo. 119, also signed as Boulder Canyon Drive in that area, will be reduced to one lane between Sugarloaf and Magnolia roads.

Cyclists are encouraged to avoid this section of Sugarloaf during the construction. Those who rely on cycling as a primary mode of transportation should contact the county to request a permit.
