The city of Sun Valley will commence its second year of road and pathway improvement projects beginning Monday, May 6.

The work is part of a $17.5 million program financed by a bond measure passed by voters in the November 2017 election.

This year’s slate of projects will start with the Elkhorn Road and path. Construction crews will establish traffic controls starting May 6, and the road will be closed to through traffic between Skyline Drive and South Village Way, though local traffic will be permitted. Access to residences will stay open.

Most drivers will be diverted onto Village Way, according to the city government.

Access to the bike path from Skyline Drive to South Village Way will be closed, and cyclists and pedestrians should use the Village Way bike path instead, the city stated.

Work will occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily. The work on Elkhorn Road is expected to be substantially completed by mid-June and finished by mid-July.

Crews will also be working on projects in the Twin Creeks-Juniper Road area, Morningstar Road, Blue Grouse Road and Horseshoe Road. Work will commence on projects near Fairway Road this summer.

The projects on Twin Creeks and Juniper Road should be substantially completed by mid-July and finished by mid-August. The remaining projects should be substantially completed by late August and finished by mid-September, according to the city government.
