Spring and Cooper Intersection Improvement Project Begins April 4

Aspen, Colo. – Monday, March 28, 2022 – The Spring Street and Cooper Avenue Intersection improvement project begins Monday, April 4, and is scheduled to run through Friday, May 20. The project will be constructed in five phases, with work activities to include sidewalk demolition, curb and gutter, concrete, utility, and lighting. A four-way stop, curb extensions, ADA-approved sidewalks and ramps, stormwater improvements, and painted crosswalks will be among the new permanent key features.

“It will be an impactful job in an area that is quite busy, but that’s why the work is being done in April and May,” said Jack Danneberg, project manager, City of Aspen Engineering Department. “Phasing the project should alleviate some of the headaches while ensuring critical improvements are made downtown within a short work schedule of just six weeks.”

The Spring and Cooper intersection was identified as the second-most accident-prone location downtown in a 2019 study and subsequently targeted for safety improvements in the Aspen Bicycle Pedestrian Master Plan, which outlines the community’s desire to create a pedestrian and bike-friendly town. The project’s goals are to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety by increasing visibility and reducing pedestrian exposure time in the crosswalk.

Construction impacts:

  • Pedestrian and business access will remain open with pedestrian and accessible access detours in place.
  • One or two parking spaces will be closed at each of the corners of the intersection.
  • No right turns will be permitted within the work zone. 
  • Work in Phase V will require a full intersection closure for three days in mid-May for paving and surface improvements.
