Main Street Construction


Main Street (Hwy 24) Pedestrian Planning & Construction

Residents of Minturn have repeatedly expressed through committees, master planning, public comments, Planning Commission meetings and Council meetings, the desire for the town to provide a safe modem of transportation for pedestrians of all ages, especially along areas of Main Street (HWY 24) where no sidewalk, curb, path or shoulder exists for children walking to the school bus stop or families trying to get to Little Beach Park (as examples).


The Main Street Pedestrian Planning (engineering) project is the first action step in the process to meet this public need. Minturn has received a Transportation Alternative Program grant through the Federal Government, to engineer a set of plans for what the extension of sidewalks/paths might look like on Main Street to Maloit Park Road. Minturn then intends to use these engineered plans to apply for grants to assist the funding of constructing such infrastructure. Through a competitive process, the town has hired Stolfus & Associates to be the lead engineer for the project. Stolfus is an engineering firm which specializes in transportation projects.

Thank you for your commitment to the community.
