In preparation for MAX Bus Rapid Transit, West Drake Road from College Avenue to McClelland Drive is scheduled to be repaved as part of the City of Fort Collins 2013 Street Maintenance Program.
Construction will begin Monday, October 28 and will be completed in approximately one week. Working hours for the project will typically be Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.; however, work may occur outside these times or on weekends as necessary. West Drake Road will be closed in phases according to the plan below; some side streets will also be closed.
Phase 1: Westbound lanes of Drake Road CLOSED from College Avenue to McClelland Drive
Phase 2: Eastbound lanes of Drake Road CLOSED from McClelland Drive to College Avenue
The project schedule is an estimate based on favorable conditions; variances may occur due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
Alternate routes are suggested to avoid the construction zones. Detour routes include College Avenue, Horsetooth Road, Prospect Road and Shields Street. The Mason Trail will also be closed at Drake Road throughout the duration of this project. A detour route will be marked, directing trail users to Research Boulevard to safely avoid the work zone.
