Steamboat briefs: Construction work moves ahead on Lincoln Avenue

— Work is progressing rapidly on the final stretch of work to complete concrete resurfacing on the south side of Lincoln Avenue from Ninth Street to just east of Third Street, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation. Scott Contracting crews have removed asphalt and concrete from Ninth Street through Sixth Street; have removed and are replacing and stabilizing the subgrade material in this section; and are preparing for a concrete pour starting the middle of this week.

Construction will happen from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, weather permitting, with additional night and weekend work. One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction with the exception of some full night closures of Lincoln, which CDOT said would be announced and signed ahead of time. The project is expected to be completed by Nov. 18.

Traffic control will be set up between 11th Street and Third Street. The 11th Street intersection will remain open; the 10th Street intersection will have south-side access; Eighth and Ninth streets won’t have a signal, and stop signs are up; and the intersection at Fifth Street will be closed. That intersection could open again by the first week in October if all goes well, according to CDOT. Crosswalks at Ninth, Seventh, Fifth and Third streets will be open, except for Seventh while the concrete is poured.
