SUMMIT COUNTY –  Several Recpath improvement projects are slated to start in the next month. Beginning Tuesday, August 24, red bike lane coating will be added to the Recpath on Huron Road in Breckenridge. The project will take roughly three days to complete, depending on weather conditions, and will greatly improve the safety of Recpath users along this roadway. 

“The Recpath in this area was enhanced during roadway improvements last year, and this colorization will put the finishing touches on those enhancements,” said Jordan Mead, Resource Specialist with Summit County Open Space and Trails. “The additional color will set the bike lane apart from other road markings and make it more clearly visible to motorists.” 

Red bike lane coating will also be added along the Dillon Dam Road where the Recpath shares the roadway. The tentative start date for this project is the week of August 30, however will be dependent on weather conditions. The Recpath will be detoured onto the Dillon Dam Road while this work is in progress, and the road will be reduced to one lane with alternating directional traffic. Work will take place Monday through Thursday, 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and is expected to take four days to complete.

Additional shoulder improvements will occur on the Recpath along Dillon Dam Road between the Town of Frisco and the Dillon Reservoir Dam at the end of September. Recpath traffic will be detoured onto the Dillon Dam Road during weekdays when work is occurring. 

“We greatly appreciate our community’s understanding while this work to improve the safety and longevity of our Recpath is completed,” said Mead. “We know the Recpath serves as a valuable resource for our community and we look forward to improving the experience for all of our users.”

Proyectos de Mantenimiento del Recpath Programados para Finales de Agosto y Septiembre

CONDADO DE SUMMIT - Varios proyectos de mejora del Recpath están programados para comenzar el próximo mes. Empezando el martes 24 de agosto, se agregará una pintura roja para el carril de bicicletas en el Recpath por la calle Huron en Breckenridge. El proyecto tardará aproximadamente tres días en completarse, dependiendo de las condiciones climáticas, y mejorará en gran medida la seguridad de los usuarios del Recpath a lo largo de esta carretera. 

“El Recpath en esta área se acentuó durante las mejoras de las carreteras el año pasado, y esta tonalidad dará los toques finales a esas mejoras”, dijo Jordan Mead, especialista en recursos de Senderos y Espacios Abiertos del Condado de Summit. "El color adicional diferenciará el carril de bicicletas de otras marcas viales y lo hará mas claramente visible para los automovilistas". 

También se agregará una pintura roja en el carril de bicicletas a lo largo de la calle de Dillon Dam, donde el Recpath comparte la autovía. La fecha tentativa de inicio de este proyecto es la semana del 30 de agosto, sin embargo, dependerá de las condiciones climáticas. El Recpath se desviará hacia la calle de Dillon Dam mientras este trabajo está en progreso, y el camino se reducirá a un carril con tráfico de circulación alterna. El trabajo se llevará a cabo de lunes a jueves, de 7:00 am a 5:00 pm y se espera que demore cuatro días en completarse.

Se producirán mejoras adicionales en los bordes del Recpath a lo largo de la calle de Dillon Dam entre la ciudad de Frisco y la presa de Dillon a finales de septiembre. El tráfico del Recpath se desviará hacia la calle de Dillon Dam durante los días de semana cuando se estén realizando los trabajos. 

“Apreciamos enormemente la comprensión de nuestra comunidad mientras se completa este trabajo para mejorar la seguridad y la longevidad de nuestro Recpath”, dijo Mead. "Sabemos que el Recpath es un recurso valioso para nuestra comunidad y esperamos mejorar la experiencia de todos nuestros usuarios".
