Steamboat construction projects proceed ahead of schedule

Work on local construction projects is proceeding ahead of schedule, according to a news release from the city of Steamboat Springs.

Phase II of the Yampa Street project saw the 11th and Yampa street intersection reopen to traffic ahead of schedule Friday, June 9. Crews continued to work on hardscape installation on the 12th Street corridor near Little Toots Park, installed a new fire hydrant and water service to Eriksen Cycles/Orange Peel and worked to abandon an existing fire hydrant.

For the coming week on Yampa Street, the intersection of 12th and Yampa will be closed to vehicular traffic and on 12th Street between Yampa and the alley.

Beginning Monday, June 19, and continuing into Tuesday, June 20, the alley between 11th and 12th streets will be closed to vehicles as crews abandon an existing water service to the Eriksen Cycles/Orange Peel building. The alley is expected to reopen by the end of the day Tuesday. During the closure, the best access to businesses in this area will be via Yampa Street or Lincoln Avenue.

Work is also expected to commence near the 10th and Yampa street parking lot frontage, however, Yampa will remain open to vehicular traffic on this block.

Work associated with the Yampa Street Phase II improvements is expected to be complete by Nov. 1.
