Photo detail

Traffic backs up along Lincoln Avenue east of downtown Steamboat Springs on Monday while construction crews milled the asphalt at the Third Street intersection. Motorists who had been told Monday’s start to the months-long, $5.6 million downtown repaving project would begin on the west side of town may have been caught off guard. By the end of the day, the work had shifted to 13th Street as originally planned.
