2016 Construction Projects
The Town has several Capital projects in 2016 that should interest residents and guests.  They include:
  • The Metcalf Road bike climbing lane phase 1. This includes widening the uphill shoulder to 4 to 6 FT from Nottingham Road to Wildwood Road. Metcalf Road will also be paved along this segment. The total cost of this project is $1.26M. This is the major street improvement project for 2016 but the Town will also be repairing sections of Wildwood Road and Post Blvd that have settled over the years.
  • The Planning Department is drafting a Trails Master Plan that will be completed this spring. This plan will look at all types of trails including hiking, mountain biking and hard surface trails.
  • The last Avon segment of the Eagle Valley Trail that runs from Beaver Creek to Stonebridge Drive is planned to be constructed this year. It is an 8 to 9 FT wide paved trail and is budgeted at $2.7M. This segment of the trail is expensive because of the extensive retaining walls that are required. The is project jointed funded by the Town of Avon at $1,016,000, Eagle County at $453,534 and CDOT for $1,355,000.
  • The Town is also starting a redesign of Beaver Creek Blvd from Beaver Liquors to Lake Street with construction scheduled in 2017. The redesign will change the current vehicle focus design to one that includes all modes of transportation such as bicyclists, pedestrians, automobiles and transit users.
  • Finally, in Nottingham Park the Town is working on remodeling the restroom and replacing the playground. The Town applied for a GOCO grant for the restrooms and will remodel them in the fall if we receive the grant. Another grant will be applied for the playground and will be rebuilt in 2017 or 2018 depending on obtaining grant funding.
