Snowmass Town Briefs: Brush Creek road closure; July 4th ice cream anti-social; Collective opening; “Love a Local” vouchers

Brush Creek road closure begins week of July 13

Brush Creek Road will be closed for roughly eight weeks starting the week of July 13, according to a town news release.

The closure, which was delayed from its expected mid-June start date, will take place so the town of Snowmass Village and the Snowmass Water and Sanitation District can team up to complete two major infrastructure projects: replacing the water line beneath Brush Creek Road around the 20 mph curve and repave the section of road between the Horse Ranch Drive and Sinclair Road intersections, the news release says.

A detour similar to the one for the JAS Labor Day Experience, utilizing Highline and Owl Creek roads, will be in place for the duration of construction, which is expected to conclude in September. For more information, visit or call 970-922-2275.
