The Road & Bridge Department, as well as other agencies/organizations in Summit County, are working on a number of road and recpath projects this year.
Summit Cove Loop Project
Through the Summit Cove Loop Project, Summit County is installing bicycle/pedestrian lanes in both directions along Summit Drive and Cove Boulevard, creating safer and more enjoyable walking and riding experiences along a 2.4-mile loop in the Summit Cove neighborhood. The project will also include roadway improvements, drainage improvements and enhanced connectivity with the Summit County Recpath and Summit Stage transit services. Learn more about the Summit Cove Loop Project.
Barton Ridge Subdivision
Xcel Energy will install a gas line and underground nine electric poles. Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 22, and is anticipated to be complete by mid to end of August. Work will begin at the intersection of Barton Rd. and Blue Ridge Rd. and will proceed up Barton Rd. to the Barton Ridge ubdivision. Expect single lane closures, with flaggers in place to direct traffic. Traffic should plan for potential delays during this construction period.
Copper Mountain Consolidated Metropolitan District will be installing a water line from Farley Park to Golf Course Rd. Work is scheduled to begin on May 15, starting at the well house on Golf Course Rd., but will not have any impact on the road until it reaches the intersection of Wheeler Cir. and Golf Course Rd. At that time (end of May or beginning of June), there will be a full road closure of Wheeler Cir., with a detour in place, with work anticipated to be complete by September 24. Contact Robert Martin with CMCMD at 970-968-2537 ext. 206 with any questions regarding this project.
