STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-September 28, 2020-The final link in a network system to help protect the community’s number one natural resource, the Yampa River, will be installed starting Thursday, October 1, 2020, along US40/Lincoln Avenue.
As part of the Soda Creek Water Quality Improvement Project, the large water quality vault will go in just west of the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and 12th Street. Water quality vaults collect debris and contaminates prior to being discharged into the Yampa River. This unit is the final link to provide full water quality coverage across the downtown area.
On Thursday, one east bound lane of US40/Lincoln Avenue will be closed from Dream Island to 12th Street for the duration of the project. Along West Lincoln Park, motorists traveling into downtown will begin to merge before encountering the one-lane closure at 13th Street.
The south Lincoln Ave. sidewalk will also be closed, and pedestrians will need to detour along the Yampa River Core Trail or use the north sidewalk. The project is anticipated to take approximately two weeks to complete.
The City of Steamboat Springs administers a municipal stormwater program in accordance with its Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4 Permit), to protect local waterways from pollutants found in urban stormwater runoff. This project is one of the steps the city is required to follow as part of the MS4 Permit.
