Work to continue on downtown Steamboat street projects
June 4, 2017
Work will continue this week on construction projects on Yampa and Oak streets in downtown Steamboat Springs
Yampa Street Phase II efforts for the coming week will involve the 10th to 12th street block and include the following closures.
No vehicular traffic will be allowed between the intersections of 10th and 12th streets as crews finish installing a new concrete raised intersection at 11th Street. The 10th and 12th street intersections will remain open, and a portion of this area will also reopen for better vehicular access to the Meat & Seafood Company. This area of Yampa Street is expected to completely reopen to vehicular traffic Thursday, June 9.
Beginning today, crews will move to 12th Street between Yampa Street and Lincoln Avenue and begin concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk installation along Little Toots Park and in front of Orange Peel. This portion of the project is expected to last three to four weeks, and the road will remain open to vehicular traffic during the first week of work. Little Toots Park will also remain open, but access points may be limited.
Beginning Thursday, the 11th Street intersection will reopen, and, subsequently, the 12th Street intersection will close to vehicular traffic for two to three weeks
This work is associated with the Yampa Street Phase II improvements, which are expected to be completed by Nov. 1. During this scope of the project, pedestrian and bicycle access will remain open via the Yampa River Core Trail in all work areas
