Traffic Trouble: Busy Stretch of Mulberry Street to Be Closed Oct 28-31
Road closures don't often make for "hot news," but when it comes to a pretty important stretch of a major artery in Fort Collins, an exception is made.
The City of Fort Collins put out a release on the day before the closure, which doesn't give travelers a lot of notice, especially with Halloween festivities happening during the timeframe.
Commuters in Fort Collins on Friday morning through Monday afternoon may find that their way to work is a complete mess, as they're closing down Mulberry for three days. It's one of those "you can't get there, from here, situations" while they do some work.
WHAT ARE THEY DOING?
The city's release states that they'll be doing repairs on the Great Western Railway crossing and some road repairs on Mulberry. Odd coincidence that the "sugar" company will be screwing up traffic on Halloween weekend.
WHAT TIMEFRAME IS THE CLOSURE?
It will begin at 5 a.m. on Friday, October 28, 2022 and be finished sometime in the evening on Halloween, Monday, October 31, 2022. The press release isn't exactly clear on when they hope to be completed.
WHAT STRETCH OF MULBERRY WILL BE CLOSED?
A full closure will be in-place on Mulberry between Lemay and Riverside.
WHAT MULBERRY DETOURS CAN COMMUTERS LOOK FORWARD TO?
Westbound Mulberry will be detoured onto Mulberry, eastbound Mulberry will be detoured onto Riverside.
IS THERE A BRIGHT SIDE?
Bike and pedestrian traffic along the Poudre Trail won't be detoured.
