[ARCHIVED] Midland Avenue temporarily closed to through traffic August 11-13 for Red Mountain South Project

Cone Zone

Water, stormwater, broadband and road improvements progressing well


Midland Avenue will be closed at 7 a.m. tomorrow, Wednesday, August 11 through the evening of Friday, August 13 between the Veltus Park entrance and West 10th Street. Access to Veltus Park remains open from the 8th Street and Midland Avenue intersection. For access to Red Mountain South Subdivision or the River Meadows Mobile Home Park, please use the 8th Street detour to CO 82 then to 27th Street for access to Midland Ave. No access from the north will be available. Access remains open to the North Red Mountain Drive area via Red Mountain Drive and Midland Avenue intersection.

This closure is to complete the stormwater pipe crossing to the east side of Midland Avenue for the Red Mountain subdivision’s stormwater system expansion.

Project Update

The City of Glenwood Springs Public Works, Engineering Department, and Gould Construction are making good progress on water infrastructure, broadband and road improvements as part of Phase 1 of the Red Mountain South Project. Crews have completed deconstruction on Riverview Drive and lowered the platform to final subgrade, installed three storm drain manholes and piping at 10th Street and completed the new waterline connection at 10th Street and installation of 80 feet of pipe.

“This week you may have seen the 12-foot-deep hole on 10th Street off Midland Avenue. This is where we have been able to install new water pipe and storm sewer. Before this work, there was no storm sewer in the area and the street would be inundated with water and debris during rain events. This already marks big improvements with more to come over the coming months,” shared Public Works Director Matt Langhorst.

Improvements made as part of this project are in support of the City of Glenwood Springs’s ongoing efforts to improve infrastructure, generate sustainable economic development, and ensure public safety as identified by the 2020-2025 Strategic Vision. Phase 1 of the Red Mountain South Project is expected to be complete in October. Additional information is available on the project webpage at
