Roundabout projects outlined at open house

The Urban Redevelopment Authority Advisory Committee — URAAC — and the city of Steamboat Springs will host a public open house to outline and discuss the upcoming Mount Werner Circle and Ski Time Square roundabout project from 4 to 6 p.m. Feb. 12 at the Creekside meeting room at Torian Plum, 1855 Ski Time Square.

"While we're still working out details, the open house is intended to share information early in the process and touch upon a tentative schedule, potential impacts and overall benefits," said Ralph Walton, project manager of URAAC, in a news release. "This is a significant project and we want to keep information flowing and provide two-way communications for the community, especially those in the immediate vicinity."

The project group will have three stations where interested parties can learn about the project, ask questions and discuss impacts. Additional information on the project can be found at steamboatsprings.net/stsroundabout. The project looks to enhance the intersection at Mount Werner Circle and Ski Time Square Drive with a roundabout, which would be similar to the ones constructed at Apres-Ski Way and Mt. Werner Circle and in Ski Time Square.

The project could start as early as this construction season, and once underway, it's expected to run approximately 90 days, depending upon weather conditions and construction schedules.
