City releases update on construction projects
Paving work is scheduled for the week, which will require rolling closures along the entire stretch of Yampa Street. Exact closure areas will be dependent on weather and work progress. Overnight closures may be necessary between intersections, and crews will attempt to limit closures to parking areas only.
Asphalt work will begin at 12th Street and progress toward the current closure area near Eighth Street. Crews will also perform asphalt patching between Sixth and Fifth streets. There will be some restrictions to vehicular travel and access to public parking in these areas.
Continuing Oct. 24, Yampa Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between Sixth and Eighth streets, including the Seventh Street intersection. Portions of the sidewalk on the south side of Yampa will be closed intermittently, and pedestrians will be routed around the sidewalk closure throughout the week.
Pedestrian crossing corridors will remain open between Seventh and Eighth streets and Sixth and Seventh streets. The public parking lot at Seventh and Yampa street will remain open with access via Seventh Street.
Signage and wayfinding will continue to be installed during the required closures, and the city asks visitors, employees and residents to respect closures and use the designated detours and parking areas. Additional nearby parking is available at the 10th and Yampa street parking lot, the rodeo grounds parking lot and Howelsen Hill parking lots, with 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, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The next public information meeting is set for 9 a.m. Nov. 4 at Aurum Food & Wine, 811 Yampa St.
Oak Street will be closed along its north edge near the Fourth Street intersection and periodically between Fourth and Fifth streets on both the north and south side of the street. Pedestrian access to buildings will be maintained along the existing sidewalk. Through access along Oak Street will be open throughout the week.
Shoulder closures for work associated with reconstruction of the United Methodist Church are also underway along Oak Street between Seventh and Eighth streets.
