Construction at Glendo State Park may result in short travel delays around the southern end of the park as crews prepare the levees for excavation and improvements.
Stockpiling of sand and gravel will take place through May with the beginning of the excavation process expected to begin during June. An increase in semi-truck traffic is expected on Glendo State Park Road at that time. Visitors to the park are urged to be on the lookout for flaggers and construction traffic in the Whiskey Gulch, Sagebrush and Shelter Point Campground areas.
Construction work on the levees is expected to continue until the end of the year.
Despite the current improvements underway in the southern end of Glendo State Park, other areas of the site provide a variety of recreational opportunities including a 30-mile multi-use trail system quickly becoming a regional favorite for hikers and bikers.
