[ARCHIVED] Pine Grove Road Project Transitions To Next Phase

Pine Grove Rd July NewsFlash 2

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-July 9, 2020-Starting next week for about a three-week period, motorists along Pine Grove Road can expect to encounter more disruptive impacts to traffic flow as the Pine Grove Rd project transitions to its next phase. So far, work has occurred around the transit stops near the shoulders of the roadway. The remaining work involves construction of the center pedestrian refuge median and vehicular turn lanes.

For about a week, traffic will be pushed to the outsides of the roadway and will flow in both directions along Pine Grove Rd. Transit vehicles will stop in the road and, due to limited space, will temporarily block traffic as passengers are dropped off and picked up at transit stops within the work area.

As construction personnel move within the center of Pine Grove Rd, additional closures will be necessary. In order to protect workers, the westbound lane of Pine Grove Rd toward Lincoln Ave will be closed.

Phase 2 Diagram

During this phase, vehicles traveling westbound toward Lincoln Ave will be detoured onto Rollingstone Dr and then Anglers Dr to access Lincoln Ave. The Safeway transit stop on Pine Grove Rd will temporally be relocated in front of the Respite House on Rollingstone Dr. While the transit stop near Starbucks, will temporarily move north of Anglers Drive in front of McDonalds. This phase of the project is anticipated to last approximately two weeks.

Motorists are encouraged to slow through the work zone and use alternate routes to reduce their use of Pine Grove Road. Overnight and during weekends, when construction workers are not in the center of the roadway, crews will attempt to reopen the roadway in both directions like the Phase 1 traffic arrangement.  

Access to adjacent businesses will remain open during all phases of construction. The city is appreciative of the public’s patience and understanding during the next month of construction. When completed the $200,000 project will provide an improved pedestrian crossing and median between the existing Steamboat Springs Transit bus stops enhancing safety along this popular stretch of road.
