CDOT Hosting Public Meeting on Safety Improvement Project for US 40 in Steamboat Springs

July 10, 2014 - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - ROUTT COUNTY — The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will host a public outreach meeting on Monday, July 14 to discuss the start of a significant sized project on US 40 in Steamboat Springs.

The meeting will be at Citizen’s Hall, 124 10th Street, Steamboat Springs from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Monday.

Representatives from CDOT and Connell Resources, the local contractor selected for this project, will be on-hand to discuss details including design, phasing and traffic impacts for the project.  The general public and representatives from the city of Steamboat Springs are all encouraged to attend.

The $6 million 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 (through late fall 2014), motorists will encounter some two-way traffic, alternating traffic and speed reductions from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
