[ARCHIVED] 4th Street Bus Stop on Main Street Improvements Start August 23

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

4th Street Bus Stop on Main Street Improvements Start August 23

Aspen, Colo. – Friday, August 20, 2021 – The City of Aspen Engineering Department will temporarily close the 4th Street bus stop and the sidewalk between 4th and 5th Streets on Main Street starting Monday, August 23 to address safety improvements. Additionally, this work requires the closure of the northbound bus lane on Main Street at the site to accommodate a detour for pedestrian and cyclist traffic.  

This project will address safety improvements, including rerouting the sidewalk, replacing the curb and gutter, and repositioning the bus stop further back from the curb. Crews anticipate the closure will be in effect for two weeks, weather permitting. Construction hours will be Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturdays (as needed), 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

During construction, travelers frequenting the 4th Street Bus Stop on Main Street will need to use alternate stops located at 8th Street, 6th Street, and 2nd Street. Pedestrians will be detoured into a protected path in the bus lane. Drivers can anticipate buses merging into the traffic lane starting at 2nd Street, as well as potential delays. While traffic impacts are limited to public transit vehicles, parking included in the closure area will also be restricted during construction.
