PROJECT STATUS UPDATE

The City of Lafayette is committed to enhancing safety and multimodal travel for all users along S. Boulder Road and 120th Street. Since the project began in early 2021, crews have encountered unexpected utility conflicts and have had to revisit aspects of design along certain areas of the corridor.

In order to accommodate for the planned improvements along S. Boulder Road, some utility lines need to be entirely replaced. This was not part of the original project scope, and until these utility lines were exposed, their condition was unknown.

While working through these issues, the construction schedule has been impacted, but this added scope will benefit the integrity and longevity of the infrastructure for years to come.

A specific completion date is unknown at this time.

The City of Lafayette and the S. Boulder Road Multimodal Improvement Project team would like to thank you, the Lafayette community members. We understand the frustration that comes with construction and travel impacts, and we appreciate your continued patience and flexibility as we work to improve travel for all users along S. Boulder Road and 120th Street.


As construction continues and crews work to bring improvements to the corridor, please obey all construction signage and barriers. For your safety, use signalized or signed crosswalks to cross S. Boulder Road and watch for flaggers. Do not cross through or enter the active construction work zone at any time.

The eastern portion of the LaMont Does Park parking lot along S. Boulder Road is temporarily closed. The parking lot on Saratoga Drive is open and accessible for overflow parking.



S. Boulder Road is in a two-way/head-to-head configuration on the north side of the road. Eastbound and westbound traffic will continue to use this configuration while crews install the storm sewer pipe. Motorists can expect minor delays due to buses stopping to pick up and drop off passengers.


Additional Construction Information

  • RTD bus riders who use the stop on S. Boulder Road at Robin Hood Street can catch the bus at the next stop on Sir Galahad at S. Boulder Road. Please be aware of all traffic and stay on designated paths.

  • S. Boulder Road construction continues with utility coordination. Some of this work is primarily behind the scenes, so while you may not see crews on-site on S. Boulder Road, work continues through project collaboration.
    • The sidewalk on the south side of S. Boulder Road, from Saratoga Drive to 120th Street, will also be closed as part of this work. Pedestrians and cyclists should follow sidewalk detour signage and use the sidewalk on the north side of S. Boulder Road in this area.


Please use caution in the work zone and follow construction signage. Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change.

Project Overview

The City of Lafayette’s S. Boulder Road Multimodal Improvements project will enhance safety and multimodal travel for all users along this corridor. This project includes improvements to S. Boulder Road, between the Saratoga/Merlin Drive intersection and 120th Street, with minor work on City Center Circle and on 120th Street, between approximately Eastwind Drive and Coal Creek.

  • Improving S. Boulder Road from the Saratoga/Merlin Drive intersection to 120th Street to accommodate a center turn lane, bike lanes, and a new 6-foot-wide sidewalk along S. Boulder Road.

  • Constructing a new multi-use path (10-foot-wide sidewalk) along the south side of S. Boulder Road from the Saratoga/Merlin Drive intersection to 120th Street to improve multimodal connectivity to Alicia Sanchez Elementary School.
    1. Intermittent sidewalk improvements along City Center Circle from S. Boulder Road to the RTD Park-n-Ride.

  • Reconstructing the LaMont Does Park parking lot.

  • Burying overhead power lines along S. Boulder Road.
