Historic Arnold Barn Efforts Anticipated To Be Completed By Early July

Arnold Barn NewsFlash

After sitting comfortably in its new location this winter, the Arnold Barn Project will see work resume at the iconic entry location as Phase I wraps up and Phase II efforts begin.  Both phases will be completed by early July.

“Work has already resumed at the barn location near the intersection of Mt. Werner Road and Mt. Werner Circle,” said Public Works Engineer Danny Paul. “While we don’t anticipate as many impacts like the work that was completed last year, there could be some minor inconveniences as we put the finishing touches on the project.”

Phase I, which is roughly 80% complete, consisted of relocating and rehabilitating the Arnold Barn and installing complementary elements, such as lighting, landscaping, corral fencing and revegetation.  Fox Construction is the general contractor for Phase I. 

Duckels Construction has been selected as the contractor for Phase II, which consists of adding trails, interpretative signs, a pedestrian crosswalk and a parking pull-out area. The Phase II improvements will make the new location easier for the public to access and learn about the history of this historic structure.  

Both contractors have mobilized for their respective scopes of work.  Traffic control, potholing for possible utility conflicts, storm water management systems and clearing and grubbing have all begun.  No major closures are anticipated at this time as most of the work will take place outside of the roadway.

In addition to the Iconic Entry improvements the city will also be completing pavement replacement work in the area. These efforts will be closely coordinated to minimize impacts to the public.

This project is made possible by strong community partnerships and grassroots efforts and is funded by the Steamboat Springs Redevelopment Authority and generous contributions from community members.
