Capital Projects Overview
Soda Creek Bridge Rehabilitation
The Oak and 11th Street bridges are scheduled to be rehabilitated to reduce the erosion caused by the flowing stream. As the 11th and Oak Street bridges are within a few hundred feet of each other, mitigation work at both structures will be conducted concurrently for both cost efficiency, due to the interrelated nature of the bridge hydraulics, and to contain the construction impacts in a single year. Design work has been in process since 2020 and was completed in early 2022, with constructed slated for 2023. This project will extend the life of the existing structures by 10 years or more.
This project features a new public sidewalk adjacent to the Knoll Parking Lot, which will connect the parking lot to existing sidewalks in the area. The project will also include landscaping and lighting improvements. Both projects are being funded by the Steamboat Springs Redevelopment Authority
Located between US40 and Chinook Lane, this work includes replacement and extension of the culvert under Walton Creek Road for Burgess Creek - including 900 feet of sidewalk on the south side of Walton Creek Road.
Howelsen Hill Rodeo Grounds
Completed in November of 2021, the Howelsen Hill Rodeo Grounds Project included parking lot improvements through placing asphalt which created 210 paved parking spots, sidewalk construction, landscaping, pedestrian light installation, electric vehicle charging station construction, stormwater quality improvements and more. The goal of this project was to improve air quality, provide a better experience during the rodeo season and construct improvements for the traveling public. This project was partially funded through a Colorado Department of Transportation Grant.
Mount Werner - Steamboat Boulevard Roundabout
Decades in the making, the Mount Werner Roundabout was substantially completed in November of 2021. The multi-million-dollar project was completed in seven months starting the day after the ski area closed on April 12 and reopening on November 10. This is largest roundabout in Steamboat Springs.
Work on the Mt. Werner Road/Steamboat Blvd Roundabout will resume the week of April 18, 2022 - weather permitting. This is a continuation of the work that began in 2021 and will include the installation of irrigation systems and landscaping. In addition, a new sidewalk will be installed along the north side of Mt. Werner Road to connect Montview Lane with Pine Grove Road.
