The major roundabout infrastructure project at the intersection of Mt. Werner Road and Steamboat Blvd. will fully open to traffic on Wednesday, November 10. Crews will be working this week to complete final critical work for opening sometime in the day on Wednesday.

This is the largest roundabout (inscribed diameter of over 140 feet) in town and features two lanes westbound (toward US40) and one lane eastbound (headed to ski mountain) that can be expanded to two lanes in the future when volumes warrant. The roundabout has been appropriately sized to perform well even during Steamboat’s busiest winter periods. In addition, an existing drainage pipe to accommodate the 100-year flood was installed. New sidewalks, formalizing existing bus stops, landscaping beautification, street and pedestrian lighting are part of the overall scope.

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.
