If you used Shields Street often, then you are happy it just opened near CSU. But, there is about to be a 7 to 8 week closure a little further north on Shields. 

The City of Fort Collins is reporting that upgrades and repaving work are scheduled to start on Monday, April 24th along  Shields Street between West Vine Drive and West Mulberry Street. A full closure of  this part of Shields Street is expected to last approximately 7 to 8 weeks.
