Longmont Flood Information
The City of Longmont experienced major flooding in certain areas of the city September 11-15, 2013.
We will be maintaining this area of our site for disaster assistance and recovery information.
11/25/13 - Golden Ponds District Park is closed until December 15 while contractors repair flood damage.
11/25/13 - Sunset Street Bridge Update
The Sunset Street and St. Vrain River Bridge is owned and maintained by Boulder County. The county currently is in the process of coordinating with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) regarding available funding options. The FHWA process is taking longer than expected but we are hopeful that available funding options will be known by the end of December.
The City of Longmont has entered into an agreement with Boulder County to serve as the lead agency responsible for the design and construction of this bridge. We are anticipating that the design process for this project will be initiated just as soon as funding options have been determined.
Assuming that funding options are determined in a timely manner, it is feasible that this bridge could be constructed by the end of 2014.
11/14/13 - Button Rock Preserve is closed to the public as reconstruction work continues on County Road 80.
