Steamboat briefs: Board members sought for trail maintenance fund

The Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund is seeking two community volunteers to serve on its board, which determines trail maintenance priority and projects based on need annually. Monday is the deadline for applications.

The purpose of the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund is to provide a permanent endowment to support specific non-motorized trail and trailhead maintenance projects on public lands within the current geographical boundaries of Routt and Moffat counties.

Finishing touches put on Central Park Drive project

The Central Park Drive project will be completed with the installation of final landscaping elements in the medians in and near the roundabout Monday. As a result Connell Resources will be instituting rolling road closures from approximately 7 a.m. to noon.

Access to businesses in Central Park Plaza will be maintained, and pedestrian access will not be impacted while work is completed in the roadway. In the event of inclement weather, the work may be delayed until later in the week, but work hours will remain the same.

City of Steamboat Springs officials encourage roadway users to travel with care and watch their speed within the cone zone.

New regulation applies to snowmobile owners
