Steamboat briefs: Yampa Street closures to be lifted for 4th of July weekend

— Beginning Friday, July 1, all closures related to the Yampa Street Construction project will be lifted for the Fourth of July weekend. The roadway will be available for the traveling public and the parade through July 4.

Duckels Construction voluntarily offered to remove all barricades and closures for the busy holiday weekend. Additionally, Duckels and Connell Resources were able to coordinate with the planned paving of 910 Yampa St. to repave portions of Yampa Street six weeks earlier than originally scheduled.

Though Yampa Street will be open, there will still be limited areas where material storage and construction staging will remain through the weekend. Those areas are located in the parking spaces on Yampa Street near the 10th Street intersection and at the vacant lot near the intersection of Yampa and Seventh streets.

Construction activities will resume July 5.
