Construction of the Yampa Street Improvements Project began May 23 and Oak Street work began September 6. Both projects will continue the week of September 19.
YAMPA STREET UPDATE:
CLOSURE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19: Continuing on Monday, September 19, Yampa Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between 6th and 8th Streets, including both the 7th and 8th Street intersections. As work progresses throughout the week crews will work toward reopening the 8th Street intersection to vehicular traffic. The area between Sunpies and Aurum on the south side of Yampa Street at the 8th Street intersection with be closed to allow crews to install new sidewalk. Pedestrians will be safely routed around the sidewalk closure throughout the week and a pedestrian crossing corridor will be open between 7th and 8th Streets.
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 visitors, employees and residents to respect all closures and use the designated detours and parking areas. Shoppers and visitors are reminded that additional nearby parking is available at the 10th and Yampa Street parking lot, Rodeo Grounds parking lot and Howelsen Hill parking lots, with easy access to Yampa Street over the 9th or 5th Street bridges.
Construction work hours are from 7am to 7pm Monday through Thursday and 7am – 5pm on Fridays. Construction work on Saturdays will continue and workers will be authorized to work from 8am to 4pm those days.
