The city of Aspen is working with the Colorado Department of Transportation on repairs to the pothole at the roundabout Friday.

CDOT crews will be onsite to apply a cold patch to the pavement at 9 a.m.

Work is expected to last five to six hours and the roundabout will operate with one lane with flaggers present.

On Saturday, city-contracted crews will repair a pothole on the westbound lane of Castle Creek Bridge.

Work is expected to take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with alternating one-lane traffic. Flaggers will direct traffic.

Construction crews will return to both areas in April. At the roundabout, it will be to apply a hot patch fix. On the Castle Creek Bridge, repairs will take place over approximately three days to address drainage concerns. These dates will be announced via travel advisory and the city of Aspen’s road closures and construction NotifyMe email and text alerts. Sign up for notifications at
