Iron Springs Bike-way alignment switch along CO 9 near Frisco

September 13, 2017 - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - SUMMIT COUNTY – Tomorrow morning on Wednesday, Sept. 13, the Colorado Department of Transportation and SEMA Construction will permanently move the existing bike-way traffic along southbound Colorado Highway 9 to the newly constructed Blue Mountain Bike-way.

The new Dickey Connector Path will serve as a temporary detour until crews complete the remaining bike-way, which will travel through the proposed underpass at the north end of the project.

This new alignment, detour and the Lakeshore Perimeter Trail will remain open throughout construction.

The attached map shows the new alignment and temporary detour route. The existing bikeway along southbound CO 9 will be removed. Both the public and emergency services must utilize the new bike-way and detour.

Landscaping work will continue along the new bike-way, so path users should expect construction equipment and flaggers. Flaggers will guide construction equipment and signal temporary stops to path users. Temporary orange wayfinding and detour signs will also help guide path users.
