LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – The Colorado Department of Transportation is proposing another extended closure of Highway 34 in the Big Thompson Canyon.

The road is currently closed until May for construction.

The plan was to continue the work with intermittent lane closures through 2020, but now CDOT is proposing another complete shutdown. It would start this October and last through May of 2018.

CDOT says the closure would allow it to finish the construction two years ahead of schedule.
