Weld County Road 2/Baseline Road to close for bridge reconstruction


Starting Monday, January 3, 2022, Weld County Road 2 (Baseline Rd./East 168th Avenue) will be closed west of N. 60th Ave. to King Street to allow for the existing bridge over the Speer Canal to be demolished and reconstructed.

During the closure, the roadway will be closed 24 hours per day. Traffic will be detoured through neighboring streets with posted detour signage to assist drivers.

The project is expected to finish in March of 2022.
