Glenwood Springs to Begin Road and Utility Improvements on Blake Avenue by Roaring Fork Marketplace
Glenwood Springs, Colo. – The City of Glenwood Springs will begin construction on Blake Ave. by Roaring Fork Marketplace between 29th Street and Colorado Highway 82 on Monday, May 3, 2021. Project work will include mill and overlay the roadway, installation of concrete bus pads, replacement of the water main, electrical updates, drainage-stormwater improvements, and sidewalk improvements. This four-month project is expected to be complete in August.
“We are looking forward to getting below the surface to address the underlying issues with utilities and the road base,” said Public Works Director Matthew Langhorst. “This is one of our most frequently requested areas in town for road improvements and the work here is well needed.”
To compete these important improvements, motorists should expect lane closures with alternating one-way traffic on Blake Ave. and some full road closures in the project work area on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Business accesses will remain open but will change based on work activities. For an alternate route into Roaring Fork Marketplace, please use 29th Street. Expect some traffic delays in the area.
RFTA BUS STOP CLOSURE
The Roaring Fork Marketplace bus stops by Walmart will be closed starting Monday, May 3rd. These stops are anticipated to stay closed until September 2021. Riders should use the 27th St. South Glenwood Park & Ride as an alternate stop.
