Lincoln Tree Pruning

Parking Closures and Sidewalk Detours Expected Along Lincoln Avenue

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-September 22, 2022- Beginning on Monday, September 26, the City of Steamboat Springs, and Aspen Tree Service, will begin pruning work on the crabapple trees along Lincoln Avenue from 3rd Street to 13th Street. Work will begin on the eastbound side of Lincoln Avenue on Monday and Tuesday. As work is completed, the project will shift to the westbound side of Lincoln Avenue on Wednesday and Thursday.  

Crews will be mitigating safety hazards by removing dead limbs and promoting the overall health of the trees. “This routine maintenance is imperative in promoting the longevity and lifespan of our trees” commented Parks Supervisor Aaron Stafford. “This work is done on an annual basis in advance of the winter season and in conjunction with the installation of the holiday lights along Lincoln Avenue”. 

Several parking closures and sidewalk detours will be in place throughout the project. The public is kindly asked to respect all closures and follow detour signage, for their safety, and the safety of the workers. For those commuting along Lincoln Avenue next week, please use caution and drive slowly through the work zone. 

The following closures are currently anticipated:

  • Monday, September 26 – No parking along eastbound Lincoln Avenue beginning at 7 AM
  • Tuesday, September 27 – No parking along eastbound Lincoln Avenue beginning at 7 AM
  • Wednesday, September 28 – No parking along westbound Lincoln Avenue beginning at 7 AM
  • Thursday, September 29 – No parking along westbound Lincoln Avenue beginning at 7 AM

Work is expected to wrap up daily before peak afternoon traffic and the closed parking spaces will be reopened. Business operations along Lincoln Avenue will not be impacted by the project.
