[ARCHIVED] Lincoln Avenue Closes for Halloween Stroll On Oct. 31

This year make sure you aren’t on the trick end of Halloween when Lincoln Avenue (US Highway 40) through downtown Steamboat Springs closes for the annual downtown holiday stroll.

For more than three decades, families, friends and businesses have celebrated Halloween in historic downtown Steamboat Springs by trick-or-treating down Main Street where businesses open their doors with plenty of treats for children. The downtown stroll festivities run from 5pm to 7pm. 

Closures will start to go into effect starting at 4:45pm on Tuesday, October 31 and run through approximately 8:00pm. During the closure, traffic will detour along Oak Street from Lincoln at 5th and 11th Streets. At the conclusion of the stroll, Lincoln will reopen as soon as safely possible.  Due to the high volume of pedestrians including many children, please be patient, alert and follow Community Service Officers (CSO) directions.

While Lincoln Avenue is closed, buses will use the Oak Street detour. Temporary bus stops will be located at 5th and Oak, 7th and Oak and 9th and Oak.  Buses will also stop at the Yellow Line’s 10th and Oak stop, next to City Hall. Once Lincoln reopens, buses will return to their normal routes. 

The City of Steamboat Springs would like to thank residents and guests in advance for their cooperation during this closure and wishes everyone a safe Halloween celebration.
