CDOT TO START WORK ON U.S. 40 NEAR DINOSAUR MONUMENT AREA

STEAMBOAT SPRINGSThe Colorado Department of Transportation is set to begin work to improve U.S. 40 and Colorado 318 in the Dinosaur National Monument area.

The U.S. 40 project begins Monday. It includes chip sealing, guardrail improvements and new striping on an 18-mile segment east from the Utah state line. Flaggers will alternate one lane of traffic through the work zone from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Delays between 15 and 20 minutes are possible. This $546,000 project is scheduled for completion by July 14.



Work on Colo. 318 begins June 25. The highway will be resurfaced with two layers of chip seal and set with new striping beginning at the Utah state line and continuing east 37 miles. Guardrails also well be improved through this segment. One lane of traffic will alternate in the work zone from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Delays up to 20 minutes can be expected. Completion of this $1.3 million project is scheduled for August 8.

CDOT is advising motorists to observe the reduced 50 mph speed limits posted through both projects, reduced to 35 mph in the work zones due to the small, loose rocks that are prevalent in chip seal resurfacing areas.

CITY COUNCIL PREPARES TO VOTE ON NEW IMPACT-FEE PROPOSAL

STEAMBOAT SPRINGSThe Steamboat Springs City Council will take a final vote on its controversial impact-fee proposal this Tuesday that could, among other things, cost builders of new single-family homes $4,454.

The city is hoping the impact fees will help its cash-strapped capital projects budget, but business owners and affordable housing advocates in the city see the fees as an unfair burden heaped on new development. The money would go to capital needs created by new development, which the city’s consultant said does not pay for itself.

DOCK AT EMERALD CITY OPEN FRIDAY NIGHTS FOR STUDENTS

STEAMBOAT SPRINGSThe Dock at Emerald City is open year-round to sixth- through eighth-graders from 6 to 10 p.m. every Friday. The cost is $1, which includes music, dancing, pool table, air hockey, snack bar, Foosball and friends. Call 879-6960 for more information.
