Sun Valley Road Improvements
The City of Ketchum has partnered with the City of Sun Valley to reconstruct Sun Valley Road this summer, as the roadway has reached the end of its useful life.
The project is a full rebuild, giving it a lifespan of approximately 20 years. The city explored construction dates outside of the peak summer months but due to the size and scope of the project, this was the only feasible time for the contractor to complete the work.
The reconstruction of Sun Valley Road (Main Street to Spruce Avenue) will:
- improve the ADA accessibility at each sidewalk corner in all intersections
- provide bulb-outs at each intersection to make crosswalks safer for pedestrians
- rebuild the roadway
What to Expect (see clickable timeline at right)
As the project moves forward residents and businesses should expect minor travel delays. Pedestrian access to properties and businesses will be maintained at all times. During construction of roadway improvements, up to one block of periodic closures could occur affecting vehicular travel. Detour routes will be posted. The city has asked the contractor to minimize impacts to local businesses as much as possible.
