FORT COLLINS – On Tuesday, Sept. 5 and Wednesday Sept. 6 the City will temporarily close southbound Timberline Road for asphalt paving operations south of Battle Creek Drive to Zephyr Road.

All southbound thru traffic on Timberline Road will be detoured to Lemay Avenue (via Harmony Road) and route back to Timberline Road (via Trilby Road). Northbound Timberline lanes will remain open during this time. Westbound Zephyr Road will have access to both northbound and southbound Timberline Road.

During this closure, all access to Bacon Elementary School will be via northbound Timberline Road and Zephyr Road east of Timberline Road.
