Arapahoe Avenue, between Folsom and 15th streets, is in poor condition and in need of reconstruction. From late May 2013 through fall 2014, the City of Boulder will reconstruct the roadway into concrete and add other improvements to preserve and enhance Arapahoe Avenue.
Traffic impacts will be significant, including full-time lane closures at times. From after Memorial Day through mid-August 2013, only one eastbound lane on Arapahoe Avenue will be open to vehicular traffic. Westbound traffic and the JUMP transit service will be detoured onto Canyon Boulevard. Travelers are encouraged to use other transportation options like busing, biking or walking, and to consider parking at the downtown parking garages if driving.
The construction impacts are being coordinated with input from neighboring businesses, residents, and organizations to proactively address concerns. Businesses along Arapahoe Avenue will remain open throughout construction and appreciate your continued business. The Boulder Farmers’ Market will remain at its current location.
