DENVER (AP) Gov. John Hickenlooper says all Colorado highways damaged by September's massive floods will be reopened before Thanksgiving, well ahead of the Dec. 1 goal the state had set.
State Highway 7 between Lyons and Allenspark will reopen at 10 a.m. next Tuesday, making it the last highway to reopen.
U.S. Highway 34 between Estes Park and Loveland is reopening today.
About 485 miles of highways were destroyed or damaged by flooding. In all, 27 highways were closed.
The Colorado Department of Transportation worked with the state patrol, the National Guard, and local governments to reopen the highways over the past 3 months.
