A Year Since the Floods: Boulder County Flood Recovery Efforts

Over four days in September 2013, more than 17 inches of rain fell in various parts of Boulder County. The effect of the storm on the county's transportation infrastructure was extreme. Approximately 150 miles of roadway was damaged or completely destroyed, more than 30 bridges were damage or washed away, and countless culverts were in need of repair or replacement. This summer, the county paved many of the road sections with asphalt in order to make the roads safer to travel and easier to maintain throughout the winter months. While designed to stay together for 1- to 2-years, these repairs are not permanent. Designs for permanent roads are underway, but the timing of final construction remains uncertain due to several factors:

  • An assessment of the area's creeks to determine their new locations and how the new shapes would convey water in the future.
  • Detailed discussions with state and federal agencies to ensure that the cost of repairs is applicable for federal reimbursement.
  • Revaluation of floodplain to understand where the new flood boundaries were with the new sizes and shapes of area creeks.
