An historical archive of the year of the great flood.

We have stayed away from posting photos of the disaster because there are plenty of places to see them. But these before and after shots are too amazing to ignore. On Wednesday, September 25th the Boulder County road crew cleared a path down lower Main Street giving access to utility crews and allowing many delighted residents to get their cars off of Mesa Street, high above the flood plain.

It’s no super highway but it’s getting the job done. The work included installing a culvert next to the Main Street bridge to allow the creek that used to flow under the bridge before the flood, to flow alongside it.
