Prospect Road in Fort Collins Closed For Six Weeks Beginning March 4th
I am going to have to find a different way home from work for over a month. Beginning Monday, March 4, Prospect Road will be fully closed on either side of the railroad tracks, between College and Centre Avenue, for approximately 6 weeks.
The closure is part of the MAX bus rapid transit system construction. New water lines, sewer pipes and electric conduits need to be relocated along the MAX route, followed by a new concrete roadway, curb & gutter, and sidewalks.
Crews will be working 7 days a week, 12 hours a day (from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.) to accomplish all that needs to be done on Prospect Road as quickly as possible.
Eastbound traffic on Prospect Road will be directed to detour onto Shields Street, then to use Mulberry Street or Drake Road to reach College Avenue, and back to Prospect. Westbound traffic on Prospect Road will be directed to detour onto College Avenue, then to use Laurel or Drake to reach Shields Street, and back to Prospect. Pedestrians will be detoured to Lake Street or the Spring Creek Trail.
