Baseline designed a new roundabout at the intersection of Mt. Werner Road and Steamboat Blvd. which is a route to and from the Steamboat Ski Resort. The project goal included increased safety and traffic flow through the intersection. One of the main issues with the old intersection included long wait times for southbound travelers on Steamboat Blvd. for a break in traffic to turn left onto Mt. Werner Road. The inscribed diameter of the roundabout is 130 feet and was designed to have two lanes westbound and one lane eastbound with the option to add another lane eastbound when future traffic warrants it. A drainage analysis was also performed and the culvert under Mt. Werner Road was upsized to accommodate the 243 acres of offsite land draining to the culvert on the north side of the road. Design work began in 2020 and construction completed in time for the 2021/2022 ski season with final landscaping to be completed in spring 2022.
