boulder county 1Traveling and Cycling Restrictions in James Canyon

Mayor Schoedinger asks for patience and cooperation to assist with recovery

Due to continued recovery and repair operations associated with the September 2013 flood event, Boulder County is re-establishing restrictions on non-local traffic, including bicycles, in James Canyon from the junction with Left Hand Canyon, through Jamestown, to the junction with State Highway 72 (Peak to Peak). The restrictions will go into effect immediately. Lefthand Canyon will remain open to all roadway users.

While the county’s high-hazard area remediation work has moved out of the area and into Fourmile Mile Canyon, private recovery efforts remain extensive. There continues to be a high-volume of large trucks and heavy machinery moving in and around Jamestown, which is creating a hazardous environment for motorists and cyclists alike.

After the flood event, many sections of Lefthand Canyon and James Canyon Drive were completely destroyed and Boulder County worked quickly to replace the previous asphalt roadway by installing temporary dirt “winter roads.” In areas where “winter roads” were created, the unpaved roadway narrows significantly and safe, uphill shoulders for cyclists are no longer available. This forces cyclists into the main flow of traffic for extended lengths, creating hazardous riding and driving conditions for travelers in both directions.

County Transportation Director George Gerstle asks for everyone’s patience and understanding by avoiding travel in James Canyon, as well in the Fourmile Canyon and the Raymond/Riverside area unless you are a resident or have business in the area. “If you don’t live in these areas and aren’t helping rebuild these hard-hit communities, you’re probably obstructing recovery operations. We want to remind folks who want to travel the mountain canyons that Lefthand and Sunshine canyons are better options and are open all the way to the Peak to Peak Highway. These canyons are also are narrow and have been reconstructed out of dirt in many areas, so we are asking everyone to be patient and drive slowly, and remember we’re working to make the roads more safe for everyone.”

As was available before to area residents who routinely commute by bicycle, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office is offering special permits that will allow those people to continue cycling. Please call 303-441-3650 to obtain a permit. Failure to comply with the cycling restriction may result in a court summons.

For more information, contact Andrew Barth, Transportation Department communications specialist, at 303-441-1032.

More Boulder Creek Reopened

0

 

boulder creek 2At 5 p.m. today, May 2, the City of Boulder and Boulder County Sheriff’s Office will open an additional section of Boulder Creek from Broadway to the bridge at Arapahoe Avenue near 38th Street (just west of Foothills Parkway).

This means the creek will be open from the western edge of the city to Arapahoe Avenue just east of 38th Street.

Contractors have completed the debris removal in this area allowing the creek to open to kayakers, swimmers and tubers.

As flood recovery work progresses, other sections of Boulder Creek will be reopened when the city and county deem that it is safe for public use.

With higher flows anticipated due to spring runoff, the city will continue to monitor Boulder Creek for public safety concerns.

In past years, Boulder Creek has been closed to tubing and swimming if flows exceed 800 cubic feet per second. This threshold will continue to be used to trigger these recreational closures during spring/summer 2014.

Boulder Creek to Reopen West of Broadway

0

 

boulder creek 1At noon on Friday, April 25, the City of Boulder and Boulder County Sheriff’s Office will reopen Boulder Creek from Boulder Falls to Broadway.

Public safety officials believe that this section of Boulder Creek will be safe for kayakers, swimmers, and tubers after the heavy equipment that was being used to remove sediment and debris is moved to other drainageways.

Contractors will continue removing debris and sediment east of Broadway, and that section of Boulder Creek will remain closed to recreational use. As flood recovery work progresses, other sections of Boulder Creek will be reopened when the city and county deem that it is safe for public use.

More help for flood victims (maybe)

Volunteer interviewers will meet with flood survivors to help individuals connect with resources and gain a clear picture of what it will take to recover

 

The Long-Term Flood Recovery Group of Boulder County (LTFRG) has requested the services of a national disaster recovery group to determine who in the community will not be able to rebuild and recover without assistance. A team of World Renew volunteers will conduct one-on-one interviews with flood survivors from Feb. 10 through Feb. 22.  This process will help to prioritize individual needs and connect survivors with the LTFRG, which can provide long-term support during recovery with individual case management as well as financial and construction assistance for those most in need.

Flood aftermath2

The LTFRG is organizing five walk-in locations across the county during the organization’s time. Residents affected by the flood who require assistance for flood recovery are encouraged to visit a walk-in center to complete a short interview regarding flood losses and recovery needs.

 

All information given at the walk-in centers is confidential and will assist designated case managers to help residents connect with available resources. The information will also help to develop a detailed estimate of the total cost for recovery in the community, which will help the LTFRG as well as government agencies raise the necessary recovery funds and donations of building materials and supplies.

 

Interview questions are straightforward and should not require residents to supply any paperwork, although if flood survivors do have a FEMA number, they are asked to bring that with them to the center. Spanish language interpreters will be onsite at the Longmont location every day and will be available at other sites during designated hours. Sites are also wheelchair accessible (with the exception of the Altona Grange site) and appointments can be made for any ASL requirements.

Long-Term Flood Recovery Group of Boulder County is Now Accepting Requests for Assistance

Group is taking information about flood-affected residents with unmet needs

 

Boulder County, Colo. – The Long-Term Flood Recovery Group (LTFRG) has opened a phone line and website for anyone in Boulder or Broomfield counties seeking assistance related to unmet needs from September’s flood.  Residents needing help are encouraged to fill out the very short contact form on the website or call the hotline number to leave a brief message. Volunteer members of the group will be returning residents’ messages to do an initial intake interview which will place residents in group’s system. Case managers will be assigned over the next several weeks to residents in need and act as a guide to available resources in the county and work with residents to develop a recovery plan. The LTFRG is volunteer-based and is in a start-up phase, so patience is requested of the community while the process is developed and streamlined.

The LTFRG is charged with managing and distributing the Foothills Flood Relief Fund and also is working to secure additional donations. Donations can be made to the Fund which is housed at Foothills United Way, atwww.unitedwayfoothills.org.

 

The Long-Term Flood Recovery Group (LTFRG) has launched a website, at www.BoCoFloodRecovery.org, a phone number (303-895-3429) and email address (floodrecovery@unitedwayfoothills.org) for flood survivors to access and request assistance.

 

As the rebuilding and recovery phase proceeds, people in our community will need many resources, not all of which will be financial. The LTFRG will identify continuing needs for assistance and the process for allocating resources to ensure the long-term recovery of our whole community. Non-financial resources may include donations of critical products, volunteer construction crews, housing re-construction and repair assistance and supporting community visioning and planning processes. Ultimately, the goal is to support as many people who were affected by the September floods as possible.

 

The LTFRG is actively seeking volunteers for case managers and hotline responders. To sign up to volunteer, please visit http://volunteer.unitedwayfoothills.org/.
