City offers updates on construction projects
Construction of the Yampa and Oak street projects will continue this week.
Continuing on Monday, Sept. 26, Yampa Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between Sixth and Eighth streets, including both the Seventh and Eight street intersections.
As work progresses through the week, crews will reopen the Eighth Street intersection to vehicular traffic and shift the street closure to the Sixth Street intersection.
Portions of the sidewalk on the south side of Yampa will be closed intermittently, and pedestrians will be safely routed around the sidewalk closure throughout the week. A pedestrian crossing corridor will be open between Seventh and Eighth streets and the public parking lot at Seventh and Yampa streets will remain open.
Maintaining access to all businesses is a priority. Signage and wayfinding will continue to be installed during the required closures. For everyone’s safety, the city asks visitors, employees and residents to respect closures and use the designated detours and parking areas.
Shoppers and visitors are reminded that additional nearby parking is available at the 10th and Yampa street parking lot, the rodeo grounds parking lot and Howelsen Hill parking lots, with easy access to Yampa Street via the Ninth or Fifth street bridges.
Construction work hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays. Saturday construction work will continue between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Bi-weekly public information meetings are scheduled for
9 a.m. Fridays. The next meeting will be at 9 a.m. Oct. 7 at Aurum Food & Wine, 811 Yampa St.
Continuing Monday, Sept. 26, Oak Street will have shoulder closures along the north side of the street between Third and Fifth streets. Parking will be closed along the north edge of Oak Street from Third to Fourth street for the entire week and will begin to close from Fourth to Fifth streets as work progresses. The traveling public can expect to see construction at the intersection corners. Work for the week will include curb, gutter, sidewalk, small retaining walls, street light conduit soil boring, driveway construction, and drainage infrastructure.
A construction hotline will be updated frequently; the number to call is 970-871-7052. Information on the overall project is available on the city’s website at, diggindowntown.com.
