Utility work to impact city streets
Construction crews are working on several utility and roadway improvements in Glenwood Springs that will result in traffic impacts, according to a city news release.
Today, the intersection at Pitkin Avenue and Ninth Street is closed for a water line installation related to the Glenwood Springs Elementary School construction project. A detour will be in place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, and intermittent detours and delays should be expected at that location through July 31.
Also, starting Tuesday through July 31 there will be a full closure of Donegan Road east of Sunny Acres Drive and west of Highlands Drive for utility installations associated with the Oasis Creek Apartments project.
