Ski Time Square Project

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

This project is funded by the Steamboat Springs Redevelopment Authority (SSRA) and has long been a high priority for the SSRA and its advisory committee, the Urban Redevelopment Authority Advisory Committee (URAAC). The project will formalize Ski Time Square Drive from the existing traffic circle near the Torian Plum to the easterly terminus near the T-Bar and seeks to improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety as well as beautify the streetscape.

The Ski Time Square Drive Public Turnaround and Complete Streets Improvements Project will commence major construction activities in mid-April 2024, just after the close of ski season. This highly anticipated project will formalize Ski Time Square Drive, upgrade the streetscape with new snowmelted sidewalks and upgraded landscaping and improve vehicular circulation with a new public turnaround at the end of the public right of way. Construction is expected to progress through the summer and fall, with substantial completion expected before November 1, 2024.

Soon after the start of construction, the project team expects all public street parking on Ski Time Square Drive will become unavailable for most or all of the duration of the project. However, access to all adjacent properties will be maintained throughout the duration of project construction. Please don’t hesitate to contact the project team with any questions or concerns relating to access during the project.

This highly anticipated project will formalize Ski Time Square Drive, upgrade the streetscape with new snowmelted sidewalks and upgraded landscaping and improve vehicular circulation with a new public turnaround at the end of the public right of way. Construction is expected to progress through the summer and fall, with substantial completion expected before November 1, 2024. After completing some preliminary deep utility work last fall, the project’s general contractor, Native Excavating, will complete the project’s remaining utility work beginning in April, moving to surface improvements later on.

    Soon after the start of construction, the project team expects all public street parking on Ski Time Square Drive will become unavailable for most or all of the duration of the project. However, access to all adjacent properties will be maintained throughout the duration of project construction. Please don’t hesitate to contact the project team with any questions or concerns relating to access during the project.

    The city recently contracted with Garret Hanson, of JG Hanson Construction Management, to serve as the construction manager for this project. Mr. Hanson will be onsite most days during the construction season and will support construction coordination with adjacent properties. The SSRA project manager, Gates Gooding, will also be available throughout the project to help coordinate, answer questions, and solve any issues that may come up during the project.

    A series of biweekly public information meetings with project and construction updates will begin on Thursday, March 14, at 9 AM and continue to be held every other Thursday at the same time as long as there is interest. All interested parties are encouraged to attend for the most up-to-date information on the project. The meeting link is below:

  • Public Turnaround Design Development Plan Open For Review

    Ski Time Square Turnaround Project Design Reaches 70% Level of Completeness

    STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-November 9, 2022-The design development plans for the Ski Time Square Drive Public Turnaround and Complete Streets Improvement Project were recently completed by Baseline Engineering, bringing project design to a 70% level of completeness.

    “We’ve made significant advancements through the different design phases – conceptual, schematic and now design development - and are looking for input on this latest iteration,” said SSRA Project Manager Gates Gooding. “We’ve received great public input to date and hope to see it continue as we move forward.”

    The design development plans build upon the earlier schematic design set and refine many project details. The project will formalize Ski Time Square Drive from the existing traffic circle near Torian Plum to the easterly terminus near T-bar and seeks to improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety.

    A main project feature will be a new public turnaround at the eastern end of Ski Time Square Drive to provide drivers with a safe and easy way to turn around as well as improve fire access for the surrounding properties.

    The Urban Redevelopment Authority Advisory Committee (URAAC) is recommending the high-priority project for final budget approval by the Steamboat Springs Redevelopment Authority (SSRA) at the annual budget meeting on December 6. The project is scheduled for construction in 2023, pending successful acquisition of required easements from adjoining property owners over the next couple months.

    The team has set the remaining project schedule:

    • November - January: Final Design, Construction Planning and Coordination
    • Spring 2023: Contractor Procurement
    • April - November 2023: Project Construction

    Baseline Engineering has been working on project design since March 2022, building on a conceptual plan previously completed during 2019-2020 by Landmark Engineering, which also included outreach to adjacent landowners.

    STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-May 24, 2022-Civil design and public engagement are underway for the Ski Time Square Drive Public Turnaround and Complete Streets Improvement Project.


    This project is funded by the Steamboat Springs Redevelopment Authority (SSRA) and has long been a high priority for the SSRA and its advisory committee, the Urban Redevelopment Authority Advisory Committee (URAAC)


    The project will formalize Ski Time Square Drive from the existing traffic circle near the Torian Plum to the easterly terminus near the T-Bar and seeks to improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety as well as beautify the streetscape.


    A main feature will be a new public turnaround at the eastern end of Ski Time Square Drive to give drivers a safe and easy way to turn around and to improve fire access for the surrounding properties.


    Baseline Engineering from Steamboat Springs has been hired as the lead designer and began schematic design for the project in March 2022. The firm built on a conceptual plan previously completed during 2019-2020 by Landmark Engineering and which included some outreach to adjacent landowners. Current design work is being coordinated with adjacent property owners and existing redevelopment plans, to the extent possible.


    A public open house is being planned for late June or early July to solicit feedback on the design from the community and other stakeholders. The current schedule consists of the following:

    1. March-December 2022: Design Work & Stakeholder Engagement
    2. Late June or Early July 2022: Public Open House
    3. July-December 2022: Construction Planning & Coordination
    4. Late Spring 2023- Earliest tentative construction start date- could be pushed to future years


    In addition, Yampa Valley Electric Association has a significant project under construction in the mountain area and surrounding streets, including Ski Time Square Drive. The YVEA project is not directly associated with this project but when complete will deliver essential power to the Steamboat ski area, including redevelopment sites along Ski Time Square Drive.
