Water main replacement project set to begin Wednesday

The city of Steamboat Springs has contracted with Native Excavating to replace existing water mains, install a series of conduits for Yampa Valley Electric Association and pave the roadways throughout the Riverside subdivision west of town.

Asphalt milling will begin Wednesday, Aug. 1, and the installation of the new water main and conduit will begin the week of Aug. 6 near the entrance to U.S. Highway 40. The construction project is expected to be completed around the third week of September with an anticipated asphalt paving date of Oct. 15.

Work will be permitted between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Weekend and holiday work is not permitted.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

The project will be underway during the start of the 2018-19 school year. Students will be picked up and dropped off between 2522 Riverside Drive and the northwest corner of the Honeysuckle Lane/Riverside Drive intersection.

Sections of the roadways will be closed to through traffic throughout the duration of the project. Driveway access will be provided in the closure areas, unless the water main installation is occurring directly in front of a driveway.

Residents that are located in the closure areas are asked to minimize trips into and out of the work zone to prevent access and construction delays. Parking outside of the work zone during working hours is strongly encouraged.
