Paving & Striping Program Heats Up

Paving 2020 NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-May 9, 2022-The City of Steamboat Springs will begin its annual paving and striping program around May 16, with paving expected to be completed around mid-June, followed by striping efforts beginning the second or third week of June and completed later that same month. 

“The city’s paving program had to be modified from the original plan to account for rising costs and limited companies doing work in the area,” commented Streets Superintendent David Van Winkle. “Even with the reduced program, we’ll tackle nearly a dozen streets in an effort to continue to ensure our roadways stay in solid shape.” 

United Companies, which was awarded the contract, will apply approximately 7,000 tons of asphalt, and remove more than 27,000 sq yds of 2” and 22,000 sq yds of 3” millings across 11 city streets as part of the program. 

In addition, the project covers just over 450,000 sq ft with a two-inch lift, typical across the region for strength requirements associated with traffic loading. Weather permitting, paving should take five days to mill and two weeks to fill with new asphalt. 

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

STREETS


  • 13th Street (Lincoln to Bridge)
  • Anthony’s Circle
  • Homestead Court
  • Manitou Avenue
  • North Steamboat Blvd (Fish Creek to Meadowbrook)
  • Old West Alley (West Side of 11th Street)
  • Park Court
  • Pine Street (7th to 9th Streets)
  • Pitkin Street
  • South Anglers Drive (to tracks)
  • Steamboat Blvd (Whitewater Ln to Aspen Wood Dr)

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/or rescheduling.

The Streets Department maintains approximately 160 miles of streets, 6 miles of alleyways, 39 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.
