Jay Road paving project (63rd to 75th)
Boulder County Road Maintenance will mill and pave the asphalt surface on Jay Road between 63rd and 75th streets from Tuesday, Sept. 8 through Tuesday, Sept. 22. Work will take place between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. During working hours, Jay Road will be reduced to one-lane of traffic and flaggers will be used to move travelers safely through the construction zone. Both lanes will be open after 4 p.m each day. The roadway will be milled, so surface conditions will be less than ideal. Please use caution when traveling through the area.
