2014 Ruby Ranch Water Line Replacement and Detour
The 2014 water project is about to begin. To make the
use of the money allocated this year, there will be times when Emerald
Road will be closed more or less from the T intersection to the Pearl
intersection. The closure will be moving along this stretch of road. A
full closure for this phase is something we can do since there is
another way in to the Ranch through Willowbrook. This route is capable
of taking any emergency vehicle if they are needed, i.e fire or
ambulance. Summit County emergency services will be kept up to date by
our engineer as will the main delivery companies, UPS and FedEx. There
will be signage as well.
This year's project will affect both Filing 1 and Filing 2. The
dividing line between the two filings is the beginning of Emerald
Road. The project actually starts where last year's project
ended. This is Well #2. If you do not know where that is, contact Don.

The detour for when Emerald is fully closed:
First from Google Maps (maps and pictures copyright Google):
Assuming that you start the detour from the Kum & Go gas station,
follow Colorado 9 to the Willowbrook entrance (red line) and turn left
on to Willowbrook Road (right if coming from the North. Then follow
Willow Brook road (green) past W. Coyote Drive and look for a dirt
driveway/road on your left.
Here is the Google Map satellite view:
And finally from Google Earth:
I have indicated a fence line to look for as well as the old barn that
is part of the Lowe compound that our barn manager Glenn Morse lives at.
Follow the dirt road, you will go over our new bridge over Willowbrook
and then through the gate which will be kept open and up Pearl Road.
