Several of the city of Sun Valley’s road and path projects are now under construction, and that means traffic will be diverted on some key thoroughfares.
The work on projects began this month, and some will continue through September. Work on Elkhorn Road will entail paving parts of the road and pathway, installing new curb and gutter, culverts, raising and lowering manholes and improving Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility, according to an email from the city government.
While that is occurring, Elkhorn Road will be closed to through traffic between Skyline Drive and South Village Way, although local access will stay open.
The bike path will also be closed from South Village Way up to Skyline Drive, according to the city. Crews will also initiate full closures of Elkhorn Road near Blue Grouse and Horseshoe Road, so they can replace culverts. Those full closures will be brief, and flaggers will be present to redirect local traffic to detours, according to the city.
The projects continue next week with traffic control and construction on Parker Gulch Road, Defiance Street, Keystone Street and Independence Creek Road. Work in the Twin Creeks area has been delayed due to the soil moisture content, but will commence once the soil dries out.
