Road construction to resume Monday on South Lincoln Avenue.

— Road Construction season is ramping up, and work will begin Monday to finish up a Lincoln Avenue project.

The work will mostly take place at Pine Grove Road and South Lincoln Avenue.

“It won’t be anything like the impacts we saw last season,” Connell Resources Construction Manager Eric Marsh said.

Connell has been hired by the Colorado Department of Transportation to do the work.

The work began last year on Lincoln Avenue on the south and west sides of downtown. Curb-and-gutter was repaired, as well as center medians. Ramps were installed to be in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act. Old asphalt was milled up, and a new layer was put down.

Winter weather rolled in before Connell was able to finish all the work.

At the Pine Grove intersection, new pavement needs to be laid, and concrete ramps need to be built. New traffic lights have already been installed, but signage still needs to go in.

The work is expected to be completed in seven weeks before town gets busy again with summer visitors.

Traffic delays could be between 10 and 20 minutes.

Drivers are encouraged to not turn onto Pine Grove Road and instead use Mount Werner Road for access to the Central Park Plaza and mountain areas.

Crews will typically work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Marsh expects the milling work will take place at night, but paving will take place during the day due to cold weather during the night.

South of the intersection, workers will be installing guardrail and fencing at the Mount Werner Road overpass and Walton Creek Road.
