Highway 40 Road Work Done For The Year

The US 40 resurfacing and safety-improvement project near Steamboat has been completed for the year. Crews will return in the spring, to complete striping and traffic markings, sidewalk work, guardrail, fencing and landscaping. The $6.9 million project was a partnership between CDOT and the City of Steamboat Springs. The City contributed nearly $900 thousand to help fund the project. A synopsis of the work that has been completed is available below

The project has included the following:

  • Asphalt resurfacing (the top layer of asphalt was “milled” to address surface cracking and imperfections then overlaid with a new layer of asphalt) from east of Routt County Road 33A to Elk River Road (MP 126.0 to 130.6)

  • Shouldering and drainage improvements at CR 42 and adjacent to the KOA

  • Intersection reconstruction and signal work at US 40 and Elk River Road

  • Construction of approximately 1,800 feet of new sidewalk between Shield Drive and Riverside Plaza on the south side

  • Curb ramp improvements to add wheelchair accessibility at all four corners of Elk River Road/US 40 and along the new section of sidewalk (at three intersections and one access)
