ASPEN, Colo. – April 16, 2020 – The City of Aspen has contracted TS&L, LLC to replace the traffic signal at CO 82 and Aspen Airport Business Center Road. The signal was damaged in February when a City dump truck struck the pole.  The project will begin on Monday, April 20. Cost of the project is $71,980.00.

“We recognize that this is the best time to make this safety repair due to decreased traffic volume on the highway,” said Raquel Flinker, City of Aspen Project Manager.

SCHEDULE and IMPACTS
