Swan Mtn. Road project to end today

summit daily news

SUMMIT COUNTY – Asphalt supply problems delayed the Swan Mountain Road repaving project, which is to conclude by early afternoon today.

The road is closed to all traffic from Summit Cove (Snake River inlet) to Sapphire Point beginning at roughly 9:30 a.m.

Paving was completed Tuesday, but striping and crosswalks must be painted before the road is reopened.

The project was scheduled to finish Aug. 27, but the asphalt plant in Silverthorne “broke down” one day, and projects with the Colorado Department of Transportation – which get first priority – used up most of the asphalt on two other days, said assistand county manager Thad Noll.

No bicycle traffic is allowed on the road; however, bicyclists are reminded to use the new recpath portion from Summit Cove to Sapphire Point, and Swan Mountain Road from Sapphire Point to Farmers Korner.

The public is urged to use caution while traveling through the project, and can expect grooved pavement conditions, uneven lanes and no centerline striping.
