‘Cone zones’ all around Breckenridge

Summit Daily/Brad Odekirk

BRECKENRIDGE – With a slew of construction projects under way, motorists will face a series of detours and potential delays this summer in Breckenridge, beginning at the north end of town, where Main Street is closed from the vicinity of the old bridge to the Breckenridge Building Center. Traffic will be rerouted along French Street through the end of July, according to town officials.

Main Street will be closed today between Watson and Ski Hill Road as crews install storm sewer and water lines as part of the Main Street revitalization project. For more information, visit http://www.breckmainst.org.Work on a new parking structure at the town-owned Exchange Lot at the corner of Lincoln and Ridge is expected to start in June, with completion targeted for November, with no parking available in that lot during the construction.

The town is placing a new sidewalk on Wellington Road from Morningstar to Reiling Road, and on Reiling Road from Wellington to the town limit next to French Creek. There will also be a path on a small portion of French Creek Road connecting to Wellington Neighborhood. Construction will be completed this summer.The town will work to improve drainage on the west side of Broken Lance Drive from approximately Red Feather Drive to approximately Warriors Preserve including installation of storm sewer. Construction is scheduled for mid- to late summer.

Construction of two new pathways will enhance bike and pedestrian travel. The first pathway and bridge runs from the intersection of Highway 9 and CR 450 west to the existing bike path near Kingdom Park. The second extension provides for a new sidewalk along Highway 9 from the Conoco station south to the Ski and Racquet condos.To receive weekly construction updates directly from the town, sign up at PardonOurDust@townofbreckenridge.com.
