FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The City of Fort Collins will begin an asphalt paving project on Kechter Rd. between Strauss Cabin Rd. and I-25 Southwest Frontage Rd. beginning Monday, July 8, weather permitting.

Work is expected to last ten days, and will have the following impacts to traffic:

  • Kechter Rd. will be closed to traffic between Strauss Cabin Rd. and I-25 Southwest Frontage Rd. The intersection of Strauss Cabin Rd. and Kechter Rd. will remain open during the project.

Drivers should be aware of the closure and follow the posted detours; eastbound and westbound traffic on Kechter needing to cross I-25 will be directed to Harmony Rd. Bicycles should follow posted detours. Access to residences and businesses will be maintained except when we are working directly in front of driveways, with some delay until access can be reestablished.

This asphalt paving effort is part of the City of Fort Collins Street Maintenance Program.
