Improvement projects in the City of Longmont can take many forms, from smaller repairs that are completed quickly to larger projects that can take days, months, or even years to complete. Completing projects like these are a vital way to improve our community and help Longmont remain a great place to live and work.
Longmont recognizes the importance of keeping residents informed about these projects and offers several ways for residents to stay "in the know," from project web pages and news releases to project-specific emails about road closures, extended lane shifts, and detour routes.
Being aware of the status of large projects, such as road and bridge construction, can help residents plan alternate routes around impacted areas as well as be aware of the best ways to travel through the construction zones to patronize their favorite local businesses.
Large Project Online Resources
Some projects, such as those involving road and bridge construction, have dedicated web pages about the work. An overview of the project and status updates are provided throughout the work period.
Extensive projects, such as Resilient St. Vrain, offer subscriptions to project-specific email updates. Sign-ups for these email lists are provided on the project’s web pages.
