LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. -- The ripple effect of the devastating 2013 flood in Larimer County is still felt today.

U.S. Highway 34 from Estes Park to Loveland in Big Thompson Canyon was hit the hardest. More than 22 miles of road were damaged or destroyed.

Since then, the Colorado Department of Transportation has been working nonstop to make the scenic drive driveable once again.

With the summer fast approaching, CDOT will make some slight adjustments to accommodate the high volume of tourist traffic. It's a construction cease-fire of sorts.

CDOT hopes to complete all repairs by June 2018. Until then, pack a little patience when visiting the area.
