The closure is necessary to complete utility work associated with the Lafayette Water Reclamation Facility Expansion project and as part of the decommissioning plan within the Parkdale development project. During this transition, residents should use the detour via 119th Street and Arapahoe Road. However, this is a temporary detour. The completion of Coal Creek Boulevard and Monroe Street later this summer, will replace County Line Road as the new primary southbound route to Colo. 7.
—Sheridan Parkway: There will be a full closure of northbound and southbound Sheridan Parkway between CR 4 and Ridgeview Drive. During the project, residents and motorists can expect restricted access to residential and commercial locations, delays due to construction activities and road work and the presence of traffic control devices and flaggers.

Single lane closures and full closures of Sheridan Parkway will be in effect throughout the project, and motorists may encounter narrowed lanes and possible width restrictions. Detour signs will be posted to guide motorists around the closures and provide alternative routes. Work hours will be Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Weekend and after-hours work may be permitted upon approval by the Town of Erie. Weather delays may affect the project schedule. The project is expected to be completed date by the end of June.
