The City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department’s Urban Forestry Division will require temporary lane closures around Boulder in the next few weeks to remove a number of large trees. Forestry staff has determined that these trees pose a public safety hazard due to internal decay, structural weakness and/or large dead branches overhanging streets, sidewalks and structures. This is routine work. Dates are tentative and weather-dependent.
On Monday, Feb. 25, there will be intermittent closures of Balsam Avenue between 14th and 15th streets from noon to 3:30 p.m.
On Wednesday, Feb. 27, there will be intermittent closures of Norwood Avenue between 21st Street and Norwood Court from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Also on Feb. 27, the outside lane of northbound Broadway, north of Norwood Avenue, will be closed from noon to 3:30 p.m.
On Thursday, Feb. 28 and Friday, March 1, the southbound lane of Airport Road will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Southbound traffic will be directed into a center lane.
On Monday, March 4, the southbound and right turn lane of Spine Road will be closed north of Lookout Road from 8:30 to 11 a.m. All southbound and turning traffic will be directed through the left turn lane. Also on March 4, there will be intermittent closures of Merritt Drive from Ingersoll Place to Holmes Place between noon and 3:30 p.m.
On Tuesday, March 5, there will be intermittent closures of 55th Street between Blackhawk Road and Tenino Avenue from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Also on March 5, the outside westbound lane of South Boulder Road will be closed from noon to 3 p.m. west of Manhattan Drive.
On Sunday, March 10, the westbound lane of Valmont Road between 28th Street and 30th Street will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
In addition to these tree removals requiring lane closures, contractors working for the Urban Forestry Division will remove two other large trees with significant cavities in their trunks and/or major branches. These include the following:
- A cottonwood tree at the Main Boulder Public Library, 1001 Arapahoe Ave., with a large trunk cavity.
- A silver maple tree at 1743 Mapleton Ave. with large cavities in its major branches
City park and neighborhood street trees are inspected annually for structural integrity and safety by the Urban Forestry Division using industry-set standards and techniques. For more information, contact the Urban Forestry office, 303-441-4406, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The property owners are aware of, and in support of, the tree removal for safety reasons. There is a large beehive in the trunk, and as per normal operations, a beekeeper has been contracted to attempt to relocate the beehive during tree removal. A replacement tree has already been planted near this tree’s location.
