Reconstruction complete, Lewis Street open to traffic

With a reconstruction project complete, the 400 block of Lewis Street in downtown Pagosa Springs was reopened to traffic at 6 a.m. today.

A brief ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. at the Bell Tower at the corner of Lewis, Pagosa and 5th streets to signal the completion of the contractor’s (NORAA) work on the reconstruction phase.

The town will work through November to complete installation of street lighting, trees and street furniture and officials anticipate the project to be fully complete by Dec. 1. Town officials thank the public and local businesses for their patience during the closure and reconstruction of Lewis Street.
