About the South Midland Reconstruction Project

The 18-month-long reconstruction project will better serve the South Glenwood Springs Community for years to come. The South Midland corridor had been prone to potholes, poor site lines, regular rockfall events, and there were gaps in pedestrian infrastructure amidst the backdrop of rising traffic volumes. Approximately one-third of Glenwood Springs residents use this corridor, so that is why it is critical to Keep South Midland Moving. Construction activities began in December 2020 and will continue through Summer 2022.
