Crews are working to improve access to and from Rocky Mountain National Park with the Downtown Estes Loop Project.
Pardon our mess! Crews are working to improve access to and from Rocky Mountain National Park.
Improvements made throughout the period of construction will not only reduce travel time to the national park, but will relieve congestion and pedestrian/vehicle conflicts through downtown Estes Park. While major construction will take place January through June and October through December of 2023, visitors will experience traffic impacts such as single lane closures Monday through Thursday throughout the summer and early fall of 2023. Construction is expected to conclude in the winter of 2024.
Visitors will experience traffic impacts such as single lane closures Monday through Thursday, June through October in 2023.
The Downtown Estes Loop Project will implement one-way traffic patterns and a roundabout in strategic locations to improve traffic flow to and from the national park.

Access to many local businesses will change during the project but they are open and ready to make trips to Estes Park memorable.
Avoid the construction by parking at the Riverwalk Parking Garage (691 N. St. Vrain Ave.) for free. The garage offers 415 parking spots, accessible spaces and electric vehicle charging stations. It is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown and is the hub for all of the free, seasonal Town of Estes Park shuttles.
