Alpine Tunnel Update

The contractor will begin bringing the equipment to Pitkin and the wall site on June 18th.   Work is expected to be finished in September.  Basically 839 will be closed all summer between Quartz and the Hancock/Tomichi intersection.  

Please see the related CLOSURE NOTICE.  This is for everyone’s safety.  With heavy equipment and moving huge stones no one wants accidents to happen.  The crew will typically work Monday – Thursday 10-12 hour days, although that can change from time to time.  The complexity of an open/close/open/close option for the road was deemed to be too complex and very expensive to staff with flaggers for the entire summer. Total closure was the best option with the funds able to be used entirely on the wall and not paying flaggers all summer.

Town Hall Grant

A big thank-you to former Town Hall Commissioner Garry Winget, who worked hard on a grant application to repair the downstream wall of Town Hall.  A grant has been won by the Town!  The grant money, along with the Town's matching funds, will pay for the repairs required to restore the cracked foundation wall at Town Hall.  Thanks to all those who wrote letters in support of the grant and to Mr. Winget for his dedication to Pitkin's Town Hall.
