Elk River Road closed due to electric pole replacement; West Steamboat area without power

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Elk River Road is currently closed between Downhill Drive and U.S. Highway 40 while crews replace a power pole.

According to a Yampa Valley Electric Association spokesperson, a vehicle hit some infrastructure, which caused a power outage on the west side of Steamboat Springs.

Currently, traffic is being detoured via Downhill Drive. There is no estimated time of reopening. The road has been closed since around 1 p.m.

Power was restored to customers around 3:20 p.m.
