— All closures related to the Yampa Street construction project have been lifted for the Fourth of July weekend. The roadway will be available for the traveling public and the parade through Monday, July 4.

Duckels Construction voluntarily offered to remove all barricades and closures for the busy holiday weekend. Additionally, Duckels and Connell Resources were able to coordinate with the planned paving of 910 Yampa St. in order to repave portions of Yampa Street six weeks earlier than originally scheduled.

Although Yampa Street will be open, there will still be limited areas where material storage and construction staging will remain through the weekend. Those areas are located in the parking spaces on Yampa Street near the 10th Street intersection and at the vacant lot near the intersection of Yampa and Seventh streets.

Beginning on Tuesday, July 5, Yampa Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between 11th and 12th streets, including the 12th Street intersection. The 12th Street side-street will also be closed to vehicular traffic from Yampa Street up to Lincoln Avenue.

Some work will also take place in a portion of Little Toots Park and Yampa River Core Trail users will be routed around the work zone for one or two days during the work week.

Utility work in the 11th to 12th street closure area will include the infrastructure necessary to support the undergrounding of electric utilities as well as some water line and storm sewer work.

Visitors to Yampa Street are reminded that 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. Mondays through Thursdays and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays.
