Construction at CU Boulder
We recognize that construction activity on campus impacts the CU Boulder community as a whole. On this webpage, we strive to provide CU Boulder students, faculty, staff and visitors with timely updates on projects ongoing throughout the campus to help keep everyone informed about timelines, closures, safety and other impacts.
Here you will find information pages on major capital construction projects on campus, as well as a complete list of all construction projects in progress on campus.
Current construction hotspots on and near campus include:
28th Street and Colorado Ave: Construction at the intersection of Colorado Avenue at 28th Street will continue through mid 2024. Beginning Feb. 21, pedestrians will be directed to the northside sidewalk on Colorado Avenue as we close the southside sidewalk for work. The westbound bus stop at 28th and Colorado will be temporarily closed. Proceed to the Colorado at 30th Street bus stop to board buses headed to main campus. More information on City of Boulder cone zone projects can be found here.
Folsom Field scoreboard project impacts: The northside (westbound) lane of Colorado Avenue on the south side of Folsom Field will be closed from January through August 2024 for construction of a new scoreboard in Folsom Field. The single south lane will be controlled with temporary stop lights at both east and west ends of the construction zone. Stadium users accessing the stadium will be detoured through alternate gates.
Regent Drive: Campus construction on Regent Drive near the Coors Events Center may cause delays to Buff Buses and other traffic from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Regent Drive will be reduced to one lane during these hours, and flaggers will be directing traffic. Please plan accordingly, as you may need to leave early to arrive on time.
Conference Center Hotel at Broadway and University: Construction has begun for the on campus Limelight Hotel Boulder. The project website includes renderings and FAQs, and will provide ongoing updates on construction.
NBC Demolitions: This project will demolish five buildings, including 17 housing units, that are at the end of their useful lives located on Athens Street between 17th Street and 18th Street and a single-family housing unit at 1834 Marine St. The project will provide clean sites in the North Boulder Creek (NBC) area for future on-campus housing.
