The transportation department aims to reopen that stretch of road either this weekend or next week, spokeswoman Amy Ford said.
“It’s another small piece, but a good, critical route for access,” she said.
The Gov. John Hickenlooper’s office also said this week that it will reopen U.S. 36 between Lyons and Estes Park on Monday.
U.S. 34 is open from Estes Park to Drake for local access only.
