East 2nd Ave Re-striping and College Dr Signal

Construction is starting for the Downtown Durango Hotels (E 2nd Avenue between E 4th and E 5th Streets).  As part of the development approval, the hotel Developer (Lamont Companies) is required to turn East 2nd Avenue from a one-way (northbound) street to a two-way street between E 5th Street and College Drive in order to provide better access to and from the proposed new hotels, as well as accommodate the construction traffic during the hotel construction process.  Additionally, the new signal at East 2nd Avenue and College Drive will be reconfigured by the Developers to accommodate this change.  Improvements for this project include:

  • Restriping of East 2nd Avenue between E 5th Street and College Drive;
  • Restriping of the City’s on-street parking spaces along the west side of East 2nd Avenue from diagonal parking to parallel parking and reinstallation of the City’s Parking Meters;
  • Installation of new Stop Signs  at the intersection of East 2nd Avenue and East 5th Street; and
  • Reconfiguration of the new Traffic Light at East 2nd Avenue and College Drive to accommodate the changes to East 2nd Avenue. 

Travelers are encouraged to utilize caution in the construction zone.  The striping and signal improvements are expected to start on Monday, September 17th and be completed by the end of September.  For more information on the Downtown Hotel Project, visit www.durangogov.org/devupdates.
