CDOT CO 9 in Frisco Project Team to host Open House May 24

May 21, 2018 - Frisco from Main Street to Iron Springs "GAP" project to be highlighted

CDOT, Summit County, the Town of Frisco and Stolfus and Associated will host an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 24, to discuss the next steps for the Colorado Highway 9 in Frisco: Main Street to Iron Springs "GAP" project:

5-7 p.m.
Thursday, May 24
Frisco Adventure Park Day Lodge
621 Recretion Way, Frisco

This is the final project on the CO 9 corridor between Breckenridge and I-70. The design for this project is approximately 40 percent complete, and is scheduled to be 80 percent complete by October 2018.

Once funding is identified, the earliest construction could start would be late summer 2020. The proposed design will widen a 1.3-mile stretch of CO 9 between Frisco's Main Street and the recently completed Iron Springs project.

Project Highlights

- Provide two lanes in each direction connecting Summit Blvd to the Iron Springs project.

- Build sidewalk between Main St. and the County Commons.

- Install a pedestrian underpass under CO 9 between the Peninsula Recreation Area and the Summit Stage bus stop near the Summit County Library.

- Improve the 8th Ave intersection by constructing a roundabout that will allow better local access to the north.

- Rebuild the Main Street intersection, so the sweeping southbound right turn lane can be reconstructed closer to the intersection.  This will slow traffic prior to reaching 7th Avenue and allow a crosswalk to be installed across the Main Street leg of the intersection.

- The Water Dance Drive/Peak One Boulevard intersection could either be a roundabout or a signalized intersection.  The design for both options will continue to be developed to determine impacts and cost. The roundabout is the more expensive option, and construction costs must be identified to determine if it can be built within the project budget.
