This week, Summit County’s design-build team of Ecological Resource Consultants/Tezak Heavy Equipment (ERC/Tezak) is completing this year’s revegetation work on the Swan River Restoration project site. Crews from Western State Reclamation are installing the final soil amendments, seed, and erosion control devices.
The onsite crushing operation is nearly complete as well. Crews anticipate beginning to demobilize from the site this week, leaving behind a pile of road base for the State Highway 9 (SH 9) realignment project. The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) anticipates the SH 9 project to be substantially completed during 2017, so this remaining pile will likely be gone by this time next year.
By the end of this week, all construction-related activities will enter into a winter shut-down period before recommencing with final planting work in spring/early summer 2017. Things are quickly winding down onsite and this is likely the penultimate Swan River Restoration Project blog post for the year.
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.
