Portion of WCR 105 to undergo construction

Residents in the northern part of Weld County can look forward to improvements coming soon to Weld County Road 105.

Last week, The Board of Commissioners approved temporary closure of WCR 105 between Highway 14 and Weld County Road 390 while construction occurs. Construction will include paving and the creation of a “T” intersection which will allow for safer and easier access to Highway 14 from county road 105.

“This is the culmination of a very long project,” Weld County Commissioner Mike Freeman said. “This project is crucial to our residents and we appreciate their patience as we get it completed.”

Closures along WCR 105 began Monday, July 16 and will last until Thursday, Nov. 15. Message boards, and road closure signs will be placed along Highway 14 and WCR 105 and all landowners along the impacted portion of WCR 105 have been notified. Detour routes during construction will include WCR 390 and WCR 103 which have been prepared throughout the summer to handle the additional traffic.

This improvement project began as an effort five years ago to improve county road 390 near Grover. After meetings were held with residents, the commissioners determined to stop improvement plans scheduled for WCR 390 and instead focus efforts on improving travel and safety along county road 105.

“We decided that as part of our capital plan we needed to get the road done,” said Commissioner Pro-Tem Barbara Kirkmeyer. “This has been a long-term project and our Department of Public Works has done a great job facilitating everything and working with residents. We’re excited to get started on this project and to improve a road so many of our rural residents depend on.”
