US Highway 36 Closing For Blasting

LYONS, Colo. (AP) – State and federal highway officials plan to close U.S. Highway 36 west of Pinewood Springs near Estes Park on Monday for blasting, which is part of a flood reconstruction project.

Motorists can use alternate routes, including Colorado Highway 7 between Lyons and Estes Park.
