STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-September 20, 2019-11th Street between Lincoln Avenue and Oak Street will take on a new look, although temporary, when the city simulates proposed improvements envisioned for this block.
“Putting in these temporary measures will give us a real life simulation of the proposed configuration and determine if adjustments should be made as part of the design work,” commented Public Works Engineer Danny Paul. “The process also allows us to make observations that otherwise might be difficult to deduce from design documents alone.”
The city will deploy rubberized parking stops sometime next week along the west side of the Nordic Lodge to simulate the future sidewalk footprint, as well as temporary parking configurations along this portion of 11th St. Access to parking areas will be impacted on a limited basis while crews install the temporary stops.
The temporary measures will only be in place for about one month, at which time they will be removed and the street returned to its current state.
The study is being conducted in conjunction with design work on the Soda Creek Bridges & Neighborhood Improvements Project, which seeks to replace the existing bridges on Soda Creek at the Oak and 11th Street crossings and make street improvements that incorporate new sidewalks, landscaping and lighting.
“This effort is similar to past examples the city has undertaken, for example during work on Yampa Street,” continued Paul. “This process allowed us to move from the blueprint concepts to real-time experience; gaining valuable results before making these improvements permanent.”
Design work for the Soda Creek Bridges & Neighborhood Improvements Project began earlier this year and will continue through 2020 with construction planned in 2022 or 2023. Please contact project manager, Danny Paul, with questions on the temporary simulation or to learn more about the bridge replacement project.
