Flood-damaged County Road 44H should reopen by end of November

County Road 44H, commonly referred to as Pennock Pass Road, will reopen by the end of November according to Todd Juergens, senior construction manager for Larimer County engineering department. The road was erased by Buckhorn Creek flooding caused by mid-September’s heavy rains.

Three to 4 inches of road base has been laid and Juergens estimates final grading will take about 10 days. When the road opens, travel will be restricted to residents.

County Road 27 from Stove Prairie School to Poudre Canyon, Hwy 14 is now open. Two crews, one working down from the Forest Service station and another working from the bottom up completed 11.5 miles of road three weeks ago.

Juergens said Larimer County road crews are currently working to repair County Road 43 from Drake to Glen Haven and are also at work on Fish Creek Road in Estes Park.
