Officials give update on Yampa Street construction
Beginning July 11, Yampa Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between 10th and 12th streets, including the 11th Street intersection.
Before this closure takes effect, crews will be wrapping up work from the previous week on 12th Street between Yampa Street and the alley. Utility work in the 10th to 12th street closure area will include the infrastructure necessary to support the undergrounding of electric utilities, as well as some water line and storm sewer work.
An unrelated construction project by Fox Construction is continuing on private property between Ninth and 10th streets.
Signage and wayfinding will continue to be installed during the required closures. For everyone’s safety, the city of Steamboat Springs is asking visitors, employees and residents to respect all closures and use the designated detours and parking areas.
Visitors to Yampa Street are reminded that additional nearby parking is available at the 10th Street lot, as well as at the Howelsen Hill parking lots, with easy access to Yampa Street over the Ninth Street pedestrian bridge.
Construction work hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday.
For construction updates, call the hotline the city has established at 970-870-7052.

For many, the days of riding the school bus have long passed, but watching students through the back windows of a bus that is stopped at a stop sign can bring back memories.
