PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
The City of Aspen is Working to Repair Road Damages
Aspen, Colo. – Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2023 – The continuous snowfall and large temperature swings have led to accelerated pavement deterioration. While City crews are responsible for patching flexible and rigid pavements within City right of way, City crews also participate in an agreement with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to provide patching assistance on the Highway 82 corridor.
Due to extreme staffing shortages CDOT has not been able to provide typical maintenance services within their right of way. City staff is working to mitigate these challenges.
- City crews are prepped and ready to begin ‘cold’ patching operations during night time hours and will continue patching operations as needed throughout the remainder of the winter.
- Warm asphalt patching operations will occur as weather permits in coming days.
- Staff are investigating any other assistance CDOT can provide to address pavement condition on the Highway 82 corridor.
Staff will also monitor side streets for temporary repairs. To report road damage please visit Aspen 311 Connect.
