2016 construction is ramping up in Summit Cove!

Posted on May 27, 2016 at 2:30 PM by Julie Sutor

Happy spring, Summit Cove!

Earlier this month, we began Phase 2 of the Summit Cove Loop Project, which includes resurfacing of four side roads and a widening of the Soda Creek causeway. (And in case you missed it, we were recently awarded a Safe Routes to School grant from CDOT for Phase 3 work in the vicinity of Summit Cove Elementary School in 2017.)

Summit County awarded the 2016 road reconstruction work to Columbine Hills Concrete, and work commenced on May 12. The work for this summer (removal and replacement of asphalt) will take place on the following roads.

1. Gingerquill Ct (CR 134)
2. Soda Creek Ct (CR 125)
3. Landon Lane (CR 145)
4. Whispering Pines Ranch Road (CR 147)

These roads were chosen due to their poor drivability. Columbine Hills has been working to repair sub-grade failures (where the asphalt has settled).

Work on Whispering Pines Ranch Road took place May 25 and 26, with one lane of traffic being flagged through. Work will resume on Whispering Pines Ranch Road on Tuesday, May 31 (no work on Memorial Day). Drivers should expect one-lane traffic all day, with flaggers who will try to minimize delays. 

On Tuesday and Wednesday, May 31 and June 1, the asphalt on Gingerquill Court and Soda Creek Court will be removed in preparation for the new asphalt, which will be placed on Thursday and Friday, June 2 and 3.

On June 6 and 7, the asphalt mat will be removed on Landon Lane and Whispering Pines Ranch Road in preparation for new asphalt, which will be placed on Thursday and Friday, June 9 and 10.

Earlier this year, we were exploring the possibility of repairs to the Soda Creek culverts, but we have decided to hold off until a later phase of the project.

The work to widen the causeway has not started yet, but as soon as we have a qualified contractor on board to do the work, we will let you know.

Have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!
