Construction continues on US 40 near Steamboat
The Colorado Department of Transportation will continue the safety improvement project on U.S. Highway 40 at the following intersections Monday through Friday this week:
■ Eastbound and westbound at Elk River Road, intersection alternating turn lanes and concrete removal and replacement.
■ Eastbound and westbound at Anglers Drive, intersection alternating drive lanes saw cutting.
■ Eastbound and westbound at Dream Island, intersection alternating drive lanes concrete curb and gutter.
■ Eastbound and westbound at Hilltop Lane, electric conduit work.
The resurfacing effort includes traffic signal upgrades and ADA improvements extending from the Elk River Road intersection to 13th Street and then from Third Street to Walton Creek Road. The downtown core has been designated as a “no work zone” with the majority of the work happening on the outskirts of Steamboat. The city of Steamboat Springs has partnered with CDOT to include the Pine Grove Road intersection upgrades to be included in the broader project scope in order to minimize construction impacts.
Travel impacts: During the construction period, motorists will encounter some two-way traffic, alternating traffic and speed reductions from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Delays can be expected up to 20 minutes. The speed limit is reduced through the work zone. Motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians should pay attention to work zone signs and flaggers.
Connell Construction, Inc. of Steamboat Springs is the contractor for the $6 million project. It is scheduled for completion in late fall 2014.
