Steamboat briefs: County roads to be closed for work Tuesday, Wednesday
Routt County Road and Bridge will be closing Routt County Road 36G, the connector road between Mount Werner Road and C.R. 14 — River Road — for two days to repair a damaged culvert. The overnight closure will run from 7 a.m. Tuesday to 5 p.m. Wednesday.
During the closure, access to and from C.R. 14 will be to the north via Fifth Street or to the south on Colorado Highway 131/C.R. 14F. Road & Bridge officials ask motorists to be patient as the project is completed.
In addition, Routt County Road 14 will remain closed to all through traffic between C.R. 14F and C.R. 22 for the Road & Bridge Department to conduct a culvert repair. The closure will last until 5 p.m. Thursday.
Through traffic will be detoured from the north using C.R. 14F and Colo. 131, and from the south along C.R. 22, to bypass the closed section.

11K visitors expected to be in town this weekend
About 11,000 visitors are expected to be in town Saturday, according to the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s lodging barometer released Wednesday.
The figure represents 69 percent capacity at area lodging properties, with downtown occupancy at 100 percent. On the mountain, hotels are forecast at 87 percent capacity, and condos are expected to be 56 percent full.
Lodging is expected to dip to just over 6,300 visitors by Wednesday.
The Chamber’s lodging barometer is based on survey data from local lodging properties. Its primary function is to help businesses determine staffing levels during the winter and summer tourism seasons. Actual lodging occupancy levels tend to increase from the forecast levels as a result of last-minute bookings.
