Yampa Street closures announced for week of July 25
Beginning Monday, July 25, Yampa Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between Ninth and 10th streets, including the Ninth Street intersection.
Access into the public parking lot at Ninth and Yampa will be closed for a majority of the work week.
Additionally, a shoulder will be closed along the Fifth to Sixth Street block near the intersection of Fifth and Yampa streets, across the street from Steamboat Flyfisher, to allow for work on concrete streetscape in this area.
Vehicles and pedestrians will be allowed to safely pass through this work zone, but some of the adjacent public parking spaces near Lyon’s Park will be closed.
Construction work in these areas includes the infrastructure necessary to support moving electric utilities, as well as some storm drainage utility work and concrete streetscape.
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 and Yampa street parking lot, the Rodeo Grounds parking lot and Howelsen Hill parking lots, with easy access to Yampa Street over the Ninth or Fifth Street bridges.
Construction work hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays.
An unrelated construction project by Fox Construction is ongoing on private property between Ninth and 10th streets.
Bi-weekly public information meetings are scheduled for
9 a.m. Fridays. The next meeting is scheduled for Friday, July 29 at Aurum Food & Wine, 811 Yampa St.
A construction hotline, which is updated frequently, is available at 970-871-7052. Information on the overall project can be found at diggindowntown.com.
