Work begins on Apres Ski Way, Village Drive intersection

— Initial construction work on the Apres Ski Way and Village Drive intersection project began Monday.

The city of Steamboat Springs has contracted with Native Excavating to complete the project, which includes a realignment of the intersection, additional vehicular lanes and new bikes lanes, a new four-way stop, replacement and upsizing of existing culverts, installation of new sidewalks, a new bus stop pullout and landscape work. The project is being financed by the city and the Steamboat Springs Redevelopment Authority via the Urban Renewal Authority.

The city will conduct a public information meeting for the improvement project from 9 to 10 a.m. Aug. 11 at the Sundowner meeting room at One Steamboat Place, 2250 Apres Ski Way.

Work began Monday to relocate existing utility lines. To facilitate this work Native Excavating will shift westbound Apres Ski Way vehicular traffic between the intersection and roundabout into the eastbound lane. Vehicular travel lanes will be open in both directions through the work zone during this time.

Actual construction on the intersection is not scheduled to begin until Aug. 15.
