The City of Fort Collins Streets Department is scheduled to complete asphalt paving on Shields Street between Prospect Road and Horsetooth Road starting July 14. This work will be completed as part of the Street Maintenance Program. Road closures will be required to complete the work, however only one direction of travel will be closed at a time.

Construction is scheduled to occur in phases starting between West Horsetooth Road and West Drake Road, then occur between West Drake Road and West Prospect Road.

Project dates are estimates based on favorable conditions; variances may occur due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Project updates and progress will be posted online at
