Brainard Lake Road

Construction Updates

Brainard Lake Road is now open to all traffic. There may be construction crews still working. Please drive and ride with caution.

Project Description

Boulder County and the Federal Highway Administration, Central Federal Lands Highway Division (FHWA-CFLHD), in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service, and Arapahoe and Roosevelt National Forests, propose to improve 2.5 miles of Brainard Lake Road. Improvements would include 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; increasing select horizontal curve radii to improve sight distance, drainage improvements, and upgraded signage and striping.

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