New owner reopens The Forks in Livermore

The Forks in Livermore, at the junction of U.S. 287 and Red Feather Lakes Road, reopened in mid-April. The event has been long awaited in the Livermore and Red Feather communities and comes just in time for summer’s busy tourist trade.

People who regularly drive by The Forks have been watching and waiting as Scott engineered an extensive face-lift for the well-known establishment.

For now, The Forks offers gas and a convenience store. On Memorial Day weekend, Scott will open the deli and ice cream shop featuring hot and cold sub sandwiches, hot dogs, nachos, malts, shakes and ice cream cones. A Grand Opening is planned for that Saturday, May 26.

Scott also plans to serve up a healthy dose of history. There has been a business at the busy intersection since 1875, and he wants to preserve that old-time flavor. Later this year, Scott plans to open a restaurant on the second floor.

Scott has had the support of his wife Donna Jean in this undertaking. “Without her I couldn’t do these crazy projects,” he said with a smile.

The Forks, open seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., can be reached at 970-472-2690.
