Phase 1 Contractor, Schedule, Open House and Mailboxes

Posted on May 22, 2015 at 3:26 PM by Julie Sutor

We’re excited to announce that we've selected Columbine Hills Concrete to construct Phase 1 of the Summit Cove Loop Project this summer. Columbine Hills is a respected local business in Summit County with a long history of successful projects in our region.

Phase 1 of the project will include the addition of bicycle/pedestrian lanes along the entire length of Summit Drive, from Cove Boulevard to Soda Creek, along with a complete resurfacing of the road. Columbine Hills will complete this work at a lower cost and on a shorter timeline than we had originally estimated. Construction for this portion is scheduled to take place July 7 through Aug. 30, 2015.

Side Road Repair and Resurfacing
A separate contractor, Cutler Repaving, will conduct maintenance and resurfacing on four side roads: Idlewild Drive, Vail Circle, Meadow Drive and Hideaway Court. This work is scheduled to take place in July 2015. We have not yet determined specific dates.

On Summit Drive, the widening of the pavement onto the existing road shoulder will require us to move a majority of the mailboxes. Summit County and Columbine Hills are working with the U.S. Postal Service to minimize mail delivery impacts during construction, as we move all affected mailboxes to the new pavement edge. At each affected residence, we will install a standard post and mount the existing mailbox to the new post. A homeowner may move and install his or her own mailbox, as long as it meets the County’s minimum standards.

Pre-Construction Open House June 4
We will hold a pre-construction open house from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Thursday, June 4, at Summit Cove Elementary School. We invite you to come meet the contractor, ask questions, get details on the construction schedule and view project plans. Refreshments will be provided.

If you have questions about the project, contact Summit County Senior Planners Don Reimer ( or Kate Berg (, or call 970-668-4200.
