[ARCHIVED] Paving & Striping Program Returns In Early June

Paving 2020 NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-May 26, 2020-The City of Steamboat Springs will begin its annual paving and striping program on June 1, with paving expected to be completed around mid-June, followed by striping efforts beginning June 22 and completed around June 25.

“The city values its roadway network and preserving roads significantly reduces the cost of repairs or replacement down the road,” said Streets Superintendent David Van Winkle. “While we aren’t able to do as much as we would have liked this year, our roadways continue to rate in the good to above average category based on industry standards.”

City staff will work to minimize disruptions; however, residents are asked to please be patient as delays and/or detours could be encountered during the project. In addition, weather may cause delays and rescheduling.

Approximately 6,200 tons of asphalt and 42,000 square yards of milling on eight city streets and one parking lot is included as part of the project. In addition, the project covers nearly 500,000 square feet with a two-inch lift, typical across the region for strength requirements associated with traffic loading. 

The $823,000 contract was awarded to Elam Construction and spans roughly four weeks. Due to anticipated revenue shortfalls at the city from the COVID-19 outbreak, the paving program was reduced by 50% from the original amount and the number of streets went down accordingly.

The following streets or sections of streets are scheduled to be re-paved or receive a surface treatment:



2nd Street

Aspen Street (6th to 7th St)

Gondola Transit Center

Grand Street

Larimer Street

Mt. Werner Roundabout

Oak Street (3rd to 12th St)

Pine Street (2nd to 3rd St)

Ski Trail Lane

Parks & Recreation Office Building

The City of Steamboat Springs maintains approximately 80 miles of streets, 6 miles of alleyways, 37 parking lots and 105 cul-de-sacs within city limits. Most of these roadways are paved, resulting in 1.34 million square yards of maintained pavement.
