City project creates temporary alley and road closures

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The city of Steamboat Springs and Native Excavating expect to begin construction on sidewalk and streetscape improvements on the southwest side of 11th Street, between Lincoln Avenue and Yampa Street, the week of May 13.

The project improvements consist of the construction of a concrete sidewalk, street lamps and pedestrian lighting. Storm sewer enhancements will bring a new storm sewer inlet along with new curb and gutter to mitigate drainage issues.

The reconstruction of the sidewalk will be in conformance with the downtown design guidelines, which will provide better pedestrian mobility and atmosphere to the 11th Street corridor. 

The city project will take place while two other private construction projects also are going on within the adjacent area at the Lockhart property and Steamboat Whiskey Co.

Due to these three projects occurring at the same time, there will be multiple closures, including temporary alley and road closures, throughout the project, which will impact the traveling public in this area. The closures will reopen at the end of each day.

The project is being constructed during spring in an effort to reduce the impacts to adjacent businesses and is expected to last until mid-June. The overall improvements to 11th Street, which are funded by the city, are anticipated to cost about $60,000.
