Weekly Construction Update-9/12/14
Work is wrapping up at the intersection of Madison and Main. Over the weekend Main Street will be fully open and 7th Ave will be open to northbound traffic only. Starting on Monday installation of drain pipe will begin at the 7th Ave and Main Street intersection and continue west towards 6th Ave. Eastbound Main Street traffic will be detoured at 6th Ave. Main Street westbound traffic will not change. The 6th Ave eastbound Summit Stage stop will move to Granite Street.
This drain pipe work will continue the month of September from 7th Ave to Madison Ave. The construction closure will move west, as progress is made with the drain pipe installation.
Construction will be from 6:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday, but in consideration of high country weather, progress will be evaluated throughout the project and work may be allowed on Saturdays.
The whole Step Up Main project is anticipated to be completed in 2016 with 4 phases, and with work primarily occurring during the spring and fall.
Stop by and talk with Town officials about the project at a Construction Coffee at Abbey’s Coffee (720 Main St) on Friday from 9-10am.

The project will improve infrastructure and create a more welcoming and usable Main Street. Components of the project include adding additional street benches, updating street lighting, expanding the north side sidewalk two feet (to make it as wide as the current sidewalk on the south side of the street), and updating the paver design / increasing the amenity strip on each side of the sidewalk. The project will also improve drainage, as well as improve safety and functionality. Parking along Main Street will remain in its current configuration, and will result in no net loss of parking for Main Street patrons. Summer seasonal placement of flower planter boxes and hanging flower baskets are planned to continue as in past years.
