2 Years Later

2015 and 2016, our flood recovery efforts will focus on completing stabilization and repairing some 138 miles of flood damaged road and trail as well as restoring facilities at 11 developed sites, including 7 recreational sites along the Poudre River, the Big Thompson Accessible Fishing Pier, three river access sites, and the Storm Mountain Road Bridge.

An emphasis will be placed on river and floodplain restoration concurrent with major transportation corridor repairs and in partnership with river coalitions, cooperating agencies, and local residents. This collective effort will take time to insure a resilient recovery of the road and river in conjunction with the road’s final alignment. The stabilization and closure of these severely damaged roads will place them in a Maintenance level 1* status for the purpose of storing them within our system of roads until further analysis can be completed. Roads, facilities and trails that sustained extensive or complete obliteration will continue to be stabilized to the extent necessary to limit further adverse effects and will collectively be addressed through an appropriate NEPA analysis to identify future public use and compatibility with the post-flood landscape.
