Summer in Breckenridge is a time to reset. And while, summer won't start for a while yet, April and May can be nice, for their slowness, coming from the skiing high season. Summer is chance to reconnect with our human powered sports like hiking and biking. The strength and endurance we build from these sports hopefully allows us to have a strong and healthy ski season - circular, and tied together like the seasons. And as life circles for us, it goes for construction and infrastructure projects as well. As we take a collective breath and feel the earth beneath our feet, the earthmovers are also lining up to take advantage of nice weather and unfrozen ground.
A big project in Breckenridge this summer, one with the power to impact the flow of your day, perhaps in an inconvenient way, but with a long-term traffic flow benefit for all, is the Park Avenue and Four O'clock road roundabout. Historically a place of congestion - think post ski-day - the roundabout will help keep traffic moving in a critical location at critical times.
The official town information and detour map will have more detail. And remember, our fitness is what allows us to play long and hard- and the same goes for our ongoing municipal health. We've gotta do the work!
