Pinewood Springs, Colorado(KUSA) - Construction on Highway 36 between Lyons and Estes Park has caused long waits for cars - sometimes, of up to an hour and a half.
John Koch, who lives past Lyons in Pinewood Springs, says people who need relief have been using his yard.
"On a Saturday afternoon, if I wanna sit on the couch and watch TV, that's not the view I pay for," said Koch. "And the view I want out my back window isn't somebody walking around the berm [of the road] here, dropping their pants, and exposing their privates, and peeing on my property," he added.
Koch has put up a fence and many signs warning people not to pee.
"We've had people come in here and drop drawer - and poop in my yard," said Koch.
He and his wife have a sign warning of surveillance. They say they will take photos of people who trespass.
"I'll track 'em down to their vehicle, I'll get their license plate, and I'll phone it in to Estes Park, and the county sheriff will be sitting there waiting for 'em," said Koch.
He says a port-a-potty is just down the road from his home, and he encourages people who are stuck in traffic to use it.
He hopes construction crews might take Saturdays off because of the heavy weekend traffic. He says Saturdays are the worst days for people who make pit stops in his yard.
