Swan River Restoration Project - Construction Update for Week of October 10, 2016

Posted on October 11, 2016 at 1:46 PM by Jason Lederer

This week, Summit County’s design-build team of Ecological Resource Consultants/Tezak Heavy Equipment (ERC/Tezak) continues major earthwork operations on the Swan River Restoration project site. Crews are continuing to backfill around the new Tiger Road crossing in preparation for restoring the previousTiger Road traffic pattern. Work is advancing relatively quickly and the crossing should be open within a couple of weeks (unforeseen delays permitting). The temporary detour will remain place around the work zone while this work is occurring. Please continue to exercise caution and courtesy while passing through the construction site.


Crossing Fill
Crossing Grade
ERC/Tezak’s landscape restoration subcontractor, Western States Reclamation, completed their initial re-vegetation work last week and has temporarily demobilized from the project site. Once the Tiger Road crossing, remaining channel work, and remaining upland grading work are complete, they will return to the site to wrap up their work for 2016.  

Down Valley
Work is scheduled to continue through November 2016, followed by a winter shut-down period, before recommencing in spring 2017. Additional information about Swan River Restoration Project is available at RestoreTheSwanRiver.com as well as on the Open Space and Trails Special Projects web page. If you have additional questions about the restoration project, you can contact Summit County Open Space and Trails Director Brian Lorch, or Open Space and Trails Resource Specialist Jason Lederer, or call 970.668.4060.
