The City of Fort Collins Streets Department will begin an asphalt paving project on Lemay Avenue between Prospect Road and Drake Road on Tuesday, July 6, weather permitting.

Lemay Avenue will be closed in one direction at a time with the southbound lanes being closed first for several days, followed by the northbound lanes.

Drivers should be aware of changing traffic patterns and consider alternate routes. Access to residences and businesses will be maintained.

Work is expected to last 8 to 10 days, weather permitting. The asphalt paving is part of the Street Maintenance Program.

This work is separate from full closures on Lemay Avenue north of Lincoln Avenue and between Vine Drive and Conifer Street. For more information on those closures, visit

This mile of road repaving from Prospect to Drake is the second of three miles that will be repaved on Lemay Avenue this summer from Riverside Avenue to Horsetooth Road. The next phase of Lemay repaving will be Riverside Avenue to Prospect Road. To learn more about these projects, visit

Weather has a large influence on the schedule, and construction may be delayed because of precipitation or unforeseen circumstances. A map and phasing plan are attached.

Project dates are estimates based on favorable conditions; variances may occur due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Work Zone Information

Typical working hours are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., however, work may occur outside these times or on the weekends to expedite the project. Alternate routes are suggested to avoid the construction zones.
