Repaving of three main roads at Lake Pueblo State Park is to begin this week and soon will result in smooth access to the Visitor Center, the Northshore Marina and the South Marina and boat ramps.
But in the meantime, the work could cause temporary delays affecting visitors to the park over the next few weeks. The work is expected to be completed before the end of October.
Monique Mullis, park manager, said plans call for roto-milling and paving more than a mile of South Marina Road from Colorado Highway 96 north past the Visitor Center to the edge of the boat ramp.
About a half-mile of Juniper Road will be paved from South Marina Road to Reservoir Road, behind the dam.
And crews will perform similar work on about a mile of North Marina Road from the edge of the boat ramp to about the intersection with Northern Plains Road.
The work on the marina roads will go right up to the boat ramps, but there will be no work on the concrete portions of the ramp.
“We appreciate the patience and understanding of our guests as we improve access to the park,” Mullis said. “As with any construction, motorists can expect temporary closures and delays. But we’re excited to complete this project. Road improvement has been a long-term process and this is the final phase of the work on the main roads.”
Mullis urged visitors to watch the park’s Facebook page for progress reports on the construction and alerts about closures and other delays.
