Fall is the time when visible – and possibly impactful – construction projects begin and end. When town construction projects are in progress, we will list those here. Activity is subject to change without notice.
CHIP SEAL | 100% COMPLETE
Mountain Village Public Works Department will begin chip seal road work on Mountain Village Boulevard and the North Village Center Parking lot on Tuesday, July 25 through Saturday, July 29 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. (weather permitting). The chip seal will be applied for a three-mile stretch through the town beginning at the CO State Hwy 145 entrance along Mountain Village Boulevard to Country Club Drive.
The North Village Center Parking lot will be closed Tuesday, July 25 while chip seal work is performed. Resident parking permits will be honored at the Heritage Parking Garage during Tuesday’s construction period. Work on the North Village Center Parking lot is expected to be completed by the end of the day on Tuesday, July 25.
The traveling public can expect brief delays while traveling through the work zone. Drivers may experience lane shifts as well as traffic reduced to a single-lane, alternating intermittently in either direction, throughout the project. Motorists will be guided by flaggers and/or pilot cars. Delays of 5 to 15 minutes are possible. Motorists are advised to allow themselves a little more time to reach their destination if passing through these areas. Residents are urged to be alert when driving through the work zones. They should watch for flaggers, pilot cars, and slow down to the posted speed limits. They should increase the distance between the cars that they’re following to minimize the possibility of damage caused by loose gravel.
