Current construction hotspots include:

  • Spring Break lane closures: As part of ongoing construction of the new Center for Academic Success, 18th Street, near Euclid Avenue, will be reduced to one lane during the hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Monday, March 27, to Sunday, April 1. Flaggers will be present to help buses alternate as they make their way through the area. Both lanes of traffic will be open in the evenings. Work to repair gutters and roof tiles on the Duane Physics tower, meanwhile, will mean a lane closure on Colorado Avenue on the north side of the building from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 28, so that a sky lift can be used by workers. Flaggers will be similarly stationed to direct bus traffic on the street. As a reminder, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each weekday, only buses are allowed to use the 18th and Colorado corridor between Euclid Avenue and Folsom Field.

  • Hawk Light replacement: The City of Boulder on the evening of Thursday, March 30, will replace the “Hawk Light” pedestrian traffic signal on Regent Drive between the Engineering Center and the CU Police Department. Work on the new signal, which will operate like a normal traffic light, is slated to be complete by 8 a.m. the morning of Friday, March 31.
