Roadwork is underway on a portion of South 5th Street.
The Town of Pagosa Springs’ contractor started construction on South 5th Street on Tuesday, June 26, with the work requiring a road closure from the Apache Street intersection down to the high school entrance.
The project will be rebuilding a one block section of South 5th Street from Apache Street to the high school entrance (South 6th Street). The project will consist of the following: rebuilding and repaving the road; minor drainage improvements on the west side; and curb, gutter and sidewalk on the east side. The project is slated to last 75 days.
The town recommends that motorists utilize South 8th Street and or South 6th Street to reach the Yamaguchi Park/high school complex area. In order to accommodate some of the traffic flow, the town has temporarily improved South 6th Street with a gravel base, so please use caution while using that route.
As always, the town urges all motorists and pedestrians to follow all detours and traffic-control measures in and around South 5th Street.
