[ARCHIVED] Yampa Street Construction Update: Week of July 11th

Project Map

Construction of the Yampa Street Improvements Project began May 23 and will continue the week of July 11th.

CLOSURE WEEK OF JULY 11th: Beginning on Monday, July 11th Yampa Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between 10th and 12th Streets, including the 11th Street intersection. Before this closure takes effect crews will be wrapping up work from the previous week on 12th Street between Yampa Street and the alley. Utility work in the 10th to 12th Street closure area will include the infrastructure necessary to support the undergrounding of electric utilities as well as some water line and storm sewer work.

Maintaining access to all businesses is a priority. Signage and wayfinding will continue to be installed during the required closures. For everyone’s safety, we ask that visitors, employees and residents to respect all closures and use the designated detours and parking areas.

Visitors to Yampa Street are reminded that additional nearby parking is available at the 10th Street lot as well as at the Howelsen Hill parking lots with, easy access to Yampa Street over the 9th Street pedestrian bridge.

Construction work hours are from 7am to 7pm Monday through Thursday and 7am – 5pm on Fridays.

As the work progresses toward the southeast along Yampa Street Duckels will begin installing storm sewer lines and inlets, beginning at the 11th Street intersection.

An unrelated construction project by Fox Construction is continuing on private property between 9th and 10th Street.
