Aspen Valley Hospital work will affect bike path

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen CO Colorado

ASPEN – Next week, users of the Castle Creek Road bike path between Whitcomb Terrace and Meadowood Drive will be diverted to a temporary trail parallel to the existing path in order to accommodate installation of a water line.

Cyclists should use caution, as the 75-foot-long temporary trail will be covered with road base rather than asphalt. Upon completion of the water line, the trail will reopen at its original location, at least for a while.

In May, the creation of a deceleration lane on Castle Creek Road near the entrance to Whitcomb Terrace will begin. This will impact the bike path with another diversion, and traffic delays on Castle Creek Road can be expected.

The work is part of an Aspen Valley Hospital expansion project that, so far, has focused on site work for the service loop road, a retention for snow and other run-off, and preparation for the construction of a parking garage.
