Please continue to avoid Valmont Road between 30th and 34th streets. All lanes are closed in both directions. While Xcel has shut off the gasline that was cut, the line requires special equipment to repair and as a result the road remains closed for now. Boulder Police hope to possibly reopen one lane in both directions by 4:30 p.m. The northside sidewalk has reopened to pedestrians, and Xcel is expected to be on scene for several hours.
