Lyons BIKE LANES UPDATE: I just confirmed this week with the CDOT representative that construction won’t begin till September – they stated: sign installation is over 8 days, from Sept 12-21 — then striping of lanes will start Sept 21, and end October 3 (of course, depending no unexpected delays). There will be NO construction (no digging up roads; no new asphalt/overlays). Work will only be done on weekdays.=== I did make sure they knew about the (1) Broadway Modal construction and (2) the 2013 Flood commemorative events.
MAIN ST LIGHTING PROJECT: Construction for the lighting project will begin this week along the 300 and 400 blocks. Parking spaces along Main Street may be blocked, along with detours along the sidewalk. Construction is predicted to take three to four weeks but may be subject to change. Please be prepared. From the RFP – “The Town of Lyons, Colorado is requesting proposals to design, construct, and install festoon lighting between 3rd Street and 4th Street on Main Street (a/k/a “300 block”) and provide semi-permanent tree wrap lighting for the mature trees on Main Street from 4th Street to 5th Street (a/k/a “400 block”).”
HIGHWAY 7 Andesite Mining Quarry, 70 years old, is being stabilized and restored over the next few years by Boulder County Parks & Open Space. Because of its unique plant and wildlife communities, it is unlikely to be open to the public. It previously belonged to the Hall family, Lyons, and operated as a quarry by Aggregate Industries. Mining ceased in 2008.
