Emerald Park Access & Railroad Crossing
For the Week of August 14-18, 2017
generated 8/11/2017


  • Roadway CLOSURES In Emerald Park Project Remain

Roadway closures for the new roadway approach to the south of the Hampton Inn went into effect last week and remain the same.  Access to the Hampton Inn will be limited to the northern approach until the middle of September.  Detour signs are in place to direct motorists accordingly. Work progress over the past week included asphalt milling, sidewalk and curb removal, grading and utility coordination. 

For the week of August 14-18 the project includes: 
  • Site grading, roadway embankment, utility coordination and installation of drainage improvements.  


The project, which will be completed in phases, will construct new access to Emerald Park on the south side of the Hampton Inn; improve Ski Town Way, which runs parallel to the railroad tracks; and, install a new railroad crossing and abandon the old vehicular crossing at Trafalgar Drive. However, the Yampa River Core Trail will continue to use a portion of the old crossing.  While work will begin as early as Monday, July 31, the new crossing will not provide access to the park until 2018.
