Chip seal project on Trail Ridge Road begins July 9

On Monday, July 9, weather permitting, a chip seal project will begin on Trail Ridge Road on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park from the Colorado River Trailhead to the park boundary, an approximate 10-mile section.

During the chip seal project, traffic will be reduced to one lane, and 15 to 30 minute delays should be expected. Cyclists and motorcyclists should be prepared for rough road conditions. Fog sealing will take place after the chip seal has been completed. This important project will seal the surface of this section for the next seven years and is critical for the long term protection of the road. The entire project should last through late July. All facilities and trailheads along this section of road will be open during the project.

Work will not take place during the weekends.

For further information about Rocky Mountain National Park, call the park’s Information Office at (970) 586-1206.
