What’s New...

October 16, 2021:  

Phase B of the substantially completed Bellemont Access and Safety Improvements Project continued this week with the completion of remaining punch list items, additional sign work, and repairs to a section of concrete curbing that was recently damaged by motorists. Final cleanup and demobilization continued.

Final striping for the project is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday. Traffic control will be in place and delays of 5-10 minutes will be possible during striping operations. This schedule is subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen factors. 

A letter has been mailed to Bellemont-area property owners and businesses regarding the County’s ongoing work to identify and mitigate the causes of isolated traffic issues for the new roundabout and surrounding roads. The letter is available via the link in the upper right corner of this page in the "Quick Links" section .

Phase 2 Culvert Installation Project

  • Start: October 19 2020
  • Completion: November 19 2020
  • Project Engineer: Burgess & Niple, Inc.
  • Project Contractor: Banicki Construction

Public Works’ contractor has installed five corrugated metal pipe (CMP) culverts under Shadow Mountain Drive. This project, which was a prerequisite for Phase B of the upcoming Bellemont Access & Safety Improvements Project, was conducted this fall to provide a head start for Phase B of the Bellemont Access & Safety Improvements Project next spring. 

Earlier this year bedrock was encountered in the area near Shadow Mountain Drive by utility companies doing relocation work. Removal of the bedrock delayed completion of this utility relocation work, the result of which was a major factor in the decision to move the start date for Phase B from summer 2020 to spring 2021. Installing culverts this fall has helped to ensure that Phase B starts on time next spring as soon weather permits.

Phase A

Phase A of the project included a four-foot shoulder widening of Shadow Mountain Drive to install multimodal lanes between Alpine Road and Pegasus Drive.
