Snowmass road projects start Friday; chalk art contest on the Mall Saturday

Small road projects in Snowmass start Friday

Over the last week of August, a series of road maintenance and repavement projects will be carried out in Snowmass Village.

Town government officials hope to have all roadways opened by Labor Day weekend and are utilizing the same paving contractors for the various small projects to maximize efficiency, a town news release said.

The first project, repaving the Brush Creek and Wood Road roundabout, begins Friday morning. Traffic will be limited to one lane with alternating traffic and drivers should expect delays, the news release says. At noon Friday the road will reopen with a rough, grooved finish. The repavement project will be completed Monday.

On Tuesday, the town housing parking lot off of Hawk Ridge will be milled and repaved, so all residents and guests of Mountain View complexes will be asked to move their vehicles. On Wednesday, a section of Ridge Road will be milled and repaved, and the week of Aug. 31 the stretch of Brush Creek Road from Horse Ranch Drive to Sinclair, which is currently closed to the public, is set to be repaved. This will be the last phase of the Brush Creek Road project, and the road will re-open to all traffic shortly after completion, the release says.
