Yampa Street closures announced for week of July 19
Beginning Tuesday, July 19, Yampa Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between Ninth and 11th streets, including the 10th Street intersection.
Before this closure takes effect, crews will be wrapping up work from the previous week from 11th to 12th streets, and that closure will remain in effectx until the construction work and closure shifts on Tuesday.
Additionally, the Core Trail will be closed to pedestrians and bicyclists for one day between July 19 and 22 to allow crews to complete utility crossings going under the trail. Pedestrians and bicyclists will be safely routed around the construction zone closure.
Construction work in these areas includes the infrastructure necessary to support moving electric utilities, as well as some storm drainage utility work.
Signage and wayfinding will continue to be installed during the required closures. For everyone’s safety, visitors, employees and residents are asked to respect all closures and use the designated detours and parking areas.
Additional nearby parking is available at the 10th Street lot, as well as at the Howelsen Hill parking lots, with easy access to Yampa Street over the Ninth Street pedestrian bridge.
Construction work hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m, on Friday.
A construction hotline, which is updated frequently, is available at 970-871-7052. Information on the overall project can be found at diggindowntown.com.
