Public Works COVID-19 Response

Trash Collection 

Starting Wednesday, March 25, 2020 to April 26, 2020, all trash and recycling will be limited to the disposal of the contents of the trash and recycling and yard waste carts only. Your weekly service will stay on the same day, but any additional bags or special pick-up items will not be serviced during this time.

 We apologize for any inconvenience, but this will protect the drivers so we can ensure ongoing waste collection services. Please be aware of the following:

  • If possible, bag all trash contents and tie securely.
  • Items in the recycle bin should still be loose in the cart.
  • Residents who would like a larger trash cart or an additional trash cart, should contact (970) 962-2524.

COLT Transit

FLEX partners will suspend service on the route effective, April 18 in response to the COVID 19 pandemic. This will reduce the travel between many communities along the Front Range and help slow the spread of the virus.

To assist with this transition, on April 18, COLT will temporarily provide service to riders effected by the FLEX service suspension by implementing a North Shuttle with connections to the routes 1, 2 and 3. COLT will also be reducing the frequency on the route 2 from 30 minutes to 60 minutes. This will allow COLT to service the FLEX stops between the North Transfer Center (food bank) and the Walmart on Hwy 287 and 65th.

All other route timings will remain the same and the route 2 will connect with the routes 1, 3 and the shuttle at the North Transfer Center. Shuttle times will be consistent with the FLEX times on the northbound trip; however, they will be different on the southbound trip. For more information call the office 970-962-2700.

North I-25 Express Lanes project

Hwy 402 and I-25 Artist Rendering


The next phase of the $302 million, multi-year project includes elevation of the bridges that cross the Big Thompson River, improvements at the U.S. Highway 34 interchange and widening of the highway through Loveland.

The project will also feature multimodal transit, pedestrian and bicycle accommodations throughout I-25’s path through Loveland.

The City of Loveland is a community partner in the express lanes initiative with a $6 million commitment, paid in annual $2 million installments through the project’s duration. In addition, the Centerra Metro District has contributed $6 million. The two Loveland contributions account for almost half the $25 million in commitments from cities and counties along north I-25.
