Project Description and Updates:
The intersection of Park Avenue and Four O’clock Road is a critical intersection in town. Park Avenue serves as State Highway 9 and Four O’clock Road is a main artery to a large bed base. The Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) study of this intersection revealed that it met signal warrants. The Town and CDOT agreed that a roundabout would be a better solution than a signal in this area.
Funded jointly by the Town of Breckenridge and CDOT, this project is a single lane modern roundabout. Construction will be fast tracked to take place in the Spring 2017 shoulder season, beginning in April and completed by end of July. To accomplish this expedited construction schedule, a limited area closure of Park Avenue from Ski Hill Road to the entrance of F Lot is vital, and is slated for April 24 – June 30, 2017. Local traffic will be allowed for Blazing Saddles Center, River Mountain Lodge & Sawmill Creek Condos; all others will be detoured.
This is an important step in the BreckForward Parking & Transportation Plan for solutions to the traffic congestion issue.
