Olde Stage Road Reconstruction

Olde Stage Road Reconstruction & Climbing Lane (2022)

The Olde Stage reconstruction project consists of two phases:

  • Phase 1 (completed summer of 2020) includes 2 new retaining walls to provide stability for the roadway and hillside along with a new culvert at Six Mile Creek to increase resiliency and accommodate higher flows
  • Phase 2 (underway) includes repaving the entire road between Lefthand Canyon and Lee Hill drives along with a new climbing lane for cyclists on the southern most end of the project. The new climbing lane is being funded by the 2007 Countywide Transportation Sales Tax. Work is anticipated to be complete by the end of October, weather permitting.

Travel Impacts During Phase II

Motorists and cyclists can expect single lane closures between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The entire surface of Olde Stage Road surface will be milled early on during the project, so cycling conditions will be less than ideal until paving is completed at the end of September. Alternate routes are advised. Expect delays of up to 15-minutes. Longer delays may be necessary when crews are paving at intersections. Flaggers will be used to guide travelers safely around construction zones. Driveways may be inaccessible for up to 30-minutes when crews are paving in front of them. The asphalt must be allowed to cool before cars can safely drive on it.
