BOULDER, Colo. It may take up to 4 years to permanently fix all the flood-damaged highways on the Front Range.

That's what a CDOT official tells the Denver Post.

In all, 27 highways had to be closed and fixed with temporary repairs and they are now open.

But as far as starting on long term, permanent repairs, CDOT Officials say that could happen next spring.

Nearly $300 million in state and federal money is left over to make the permanent repairs.

CDOT officials say it's not likely that entire stretches of highways will be repaired because they have to focus on fixing specific areas that were damaged.

Plus, it's not clear whether the state will be getting any more additional money.
