The major project elements consist of a new partial double lane roundabout and replacement of an existing drainage pipe to convey the 100-year flood. Other improvements include addition of new sidewalks, formalizing an existing bus stop, landscaping beautification, street and pedestrian lighting. The project has been in the works for decades and design by Baseline Engineering began in 2019.

The roundabout has been appropriately sized by the engineer’s to perform well even during Steamboat’s busiest winter weekends. To that end the roundabout will have two-lanes in the westbound direction which will make it the first of its kind in Steamboat but similar to those in communities like Vail and Avon.

The project will be designed so that it can be more readily converted to a full double lane roundabout at some point in the future. The total project is expected to cost more than $4MM to complete and will be a significant improvement for the many vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists that travel through the intersection every day.
