River Pass Road speed reduction to 35 mph

September 14, 2023

After a truly tragic incident near the intersection of River Pass Road and Saddle Horn Drive, we made a commitment to the community to evaluate the safety conditions of the River Pass corridor in that area.

We are still awaiting conclusions from the Larimer County CRASH Team and the traffic engineering firm (Next Phase) we hired to conduct the study. However, Next Phase has provided an early action report that recommends lowering the speed limit on River Pass Road to 35 mph, which will go into effect today, Sept. 14. While slower speeds may impact traffic flow, this is an important first step to improving safety while we wait for the CRASH report and completion of the safety review by Next Phase.
