Brainard Lake Road

Project Description

Boulder County and the Federal Highway Administration, Central Federal Lands Highway Division (FHWA-CFLHD), in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service Arapahoe and Roosevelt National Forests, improved 2.5 miles of Brainard Lake Road. Improvements included widening to two, 11-foot travel lanes with a 4-foot paved shoulder on the uphill (onboard) side to accommodate cyclists, and a 1-foot wide paved shoulder on the downhill (outboard) side; increased select horizontal curve radii to improve sight distance, drainage improvements, and upgraded signage and striping.

CFLHD constructed this project with the CO FTFS 112(2) Brainard Lake Bridge project to leverage economies of scale and maximize the efficiencies of resources.
