BOULDER (AP) Colorado agencies overseeing a road construction project west of Boulder that includes blasting are taking care to not disturb golden eagles that nest in the area.

The Daily Camera reported that rock blasting was set for the lower Boulder Canyon along Colorado 119.

Multiple agencies have pooled their knowledge and worked together to minimize any impacts the blasting might have on the raptors. Blasting is expected to occur twice weekly through August.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Jason Clay said state wildlife biologists determined that there is a low chance of impacting the eagle nests through currently proposed construction plans and timing.

But Clay said there will be monitoring done throughout the project to see how it is affecting the birds.
