The city of Fort Collins is reconstructing Mason street, originally a one-way street, to accommodated for two lane traffic. This construction will also support the construction of the MAX Bus Rapid Transis system, a new route beginning in May 2014. This entire length of the transit construction is expected to last for about 18 months. This route will consist of 12 stops along the Mason Corridor.

Below is a timeline of the July construction and closure plan for Mason street.
