Boulder 'still open for business' After U.S. 36 Lanes Collapse
Summer is one of the busiest seasons for tourism in Boulder. With the partial collapse of lanes on eastbound U.S. 36, businesses are concerned this could keep commuting employees and visitors away. The Boulder Chamber is responding.
First, we’ve partnered with our colleagues at Downtown Boulder Partnership and the Convention and Visitors Bureau on a task force to monitor the U.S. 36 repairs and RTD service response. We also had a meeting with CDOT and RTD representative through our work with the Northwest Chamber Alliance to get a firsthand accounting of the situation and repair schedule.
We also want to make sure we’re helping to address concerns of our local businesses. "We want our visitors and commuters to know that Boulder is absolutely open for business," said John Tayer, President and CEO of the Boulder Chamber. Tayer participated in Channel 7’s coverage of the U.S. 36 damage.
