One-hundred twenty-five years after incorporation, Ridgway is finally getting paved roads in the historic downtown area with work scheduled to begin the week of March 21, 2016.
This project is a joint effort of the Town of Ridgway and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT).
American Civil Constructors (ACC) has been hired by CDOT to make improvements to State Highway (SH) 62 and several of the main commercial streets in this historic Colorado town including utilities, curb, gutter and paving. The project is slated for two construction seasons with a winter shutdown November 2016 – March 2017 and final completion in October of 2017. Despite construction, the town is preparing for active spring and summer event and tourist seasons, including the Love Your Valley Festival on May 21 celebrating Ridgway’s 125th anniversary.
CDOT, ACC and the Town of Ridgway will hold a public meeting on March 17th to introduce the community to the construction team and review the preliminary project schedule. The meeting will be held at the Ridgway Town Hall located at 201 N. Railroad Street. There will be an open house from 5:30 – 8:00 with a public presentation at 6:00 pm. If you can’t attend the meeting you are encouraged to sign up for project updates or contact the team using the following resources:
