Flood-impacted Colorado highways now open to bicycles
Dan Grunig, our executive director, toured flood-impacted state highways with the Colorado Department of Transportation in November to help identify any unique safety issues for bicyclists. The ride-along was just one step in conversations we’ve had with CDOT about the importance of reopening roads to bicycle traffic.
On Monday, CDOT announced that all flood-repaired roads are now open to cyclists! We are grateful to CDOT for including us in discussions to make sure all road users—including those who ride bicycles—have access.
If you ride these roads, be aware that you may encounter heavy construction traffic, utility work, flaggers, soft shoulders and more. We extend our encouragement and support to the residents and businesses in these areas as they take one more step toward a return to normalcy.
