ESTES PARK - The Town of Estes Park tweeted Tuesday that the Colorado Department of Transportation plans to reopen U.S. 36 between Lyons and Estes Park to through traffic on Monday.
RECENT COLORADO FLOODING STORIES
The highway has been closed for more than a month after damage from the September floods made parts of it impassible.
The highway's closure made it difficult for tourists and shoppers to travel to Estes Park during the months retailers traditionally expect strong sales.
September is the second busiest month for retailers in Estes Park trailing only July. October is the fourth strongest month for sales.
