Clear Creek County’s Road and Bridge Department works on a variety of projects across the 150 lane miles of paved roads, 170 lane miles of unpaved roads, and 7 bridges under the provisions of the National Bridge Inventory Standards over Clear Creek and other drainages across Clear Creek County. 

The steep terrain and multiple freeze-thaw zones that define the County’s topography require the Road and Bridge Department to prioritize its paving, maintenance and repair projects to ensure their functionality and public safety.  These projects and repairs allow fire trucks, ambulances and law enforcement to respond to emergencies, buses to carry our kids safely back and forth to school, residents to travel to within our community, tourists to travel here and fuel our economy, and local businesses to serve residents and visitors.

Please see the tabs below for information on any of the three categories of projects: active projects, completed projects, and future projects.
