Red Mountain South

The City of Glenwood Springs Public Works, Engineering Department and Gould Construction are happy to announce that the first phase of the Red Mountain South construction project, which began in July, is expected to reach significant completion in October with a couple of weeks in November to wrap up work. Anticipated impacts, phase I goals, and project plans are posted below. Thank you in advance for your patience as construction crews begin work on this important project. 

Links to the recordings for the community meetings can be found below under the "Community Meetings" tab.

The Red Mountain South subdivision project will provide improvements to water, sewer, storm sewer, roadway, sidewalk, curb and gutter, mill and overlay, drainage replacement, and Broadband infrastructure work within the road ROW along the main subdivision roadways.  A sidewalk addition will also be added to North Walz Ave.  Areas of work include Riverview Drive, West 11th St,. Red Mountain Drive (south), 11th Place, West 12th St, Walz Ave cul-de-sac and sidewalk addition along North Walz Ave and 11th Place.

Anticipated Impacts

  • Phase I Construction: Monday, July 19 - October 2021 (approximately 4 months)
  • Work Hours: 7 a.m.-5 p.m. (overnight impacts anticipated) 
  • Construction noise, uneven roads, lane closures with one-way traffic, shoulder work, limited water shutoffs, driveway closures
  • No street parking on Riverview Dr. beginning Monday, July 19 for the duration of the work this year (phase I). Riverview Dr. will be one-way only for the duration of phase I (anticipated to be one-way headed south but may change depending on work activities).
  • 10th Street closures to allow concrete removal, stormwater work, and replacement with a temporary then permanent surface. Use Red Mountain Dr. for alternate access.
  • Water shutdowns will be noticed 48 hours in advance with door flyers and will be kept to a minimum with the work.  Road closures will be noticed 24 hours in advance via the project email, and detours will be set up so that residents can get to and from their homes with as few disruptions as possible.
  • Residents should anticipate a period of 2-3 days during concrete pours of the curb, gutter, sidewalk, and driveway repairs, when residents cannot enter/exit their driveway while the concrete cures.  Concrete must reach a minimum strength threshold prior to driving on it. That time duration is dependent on weather conditions but generally is 3 days.
