Main Street in Frisco will close for part of a day next week and there will also be a partial closure of a roundabout on Colorado Highway 9, according to a news release from the town.

The Frisco Public Works Department will be removing parklets, the wooden outdoor structures the town set up for businesses, resulting in the closure of Main Street from Second Avenue to Fifth Avenue on Monday, Oct. 2, from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m., the release states.

Then, from Tuesday, Oct. 3, to Friday, Oct. 6, third-party contractors will be installing conduits from the center of the Peak One Boulevard/Water Dance roundabout to the median located to the south of Colorado Highway 9, according to the news release.

This will result in a small portion of the roundabout being closed through that time period, with a signed detour in place, the release states. Variable message signs have reportedly been placed along the route to give the public advanced notice so they can plan ahead.

Motorists looking to head north on Highway 9 from the Peak One Boulevard and County Commons area will need to head south toward Breckenridge first, then turn left onto Recreation Way and follow it back to Highway 9, the release states.

Those headed south on Highway 9 looking to access Water Dance or Highway 9 north will need to continue south on Highway 9 and then make a left turn onto Recreation Way where they will follow it back to Highway 9, according to the release. A right hand turn will then take drivers back onto northbound Highway 9.
