Lionshead parking garage project aims for February completion
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL, Colorado – The Lionshead Transit Center project, currently under construction on the north side of the Lionshead parking structure, is set to wrap up construction by mid-February.
The 20-space passenger drop-off, with a separate entrance off East Lionshead Circle on the west side of the garage, opened Friday. The new entrance allows for free, 30-minute parking. The entrance will close again Dec. 6-9 so the town can install decorative overhead metal panels, said Tom Kassmel, town engineer.
The town should finish the bus drop-off area and waiting area building, both along the north side of the structure along the South Frontage Road, by mid-February, he said.
The second phase of the project, which includes tearing down the Subway building on the south end of the parking structure in order to build a new welcome center, has passed through the town’s Planning and Environmental Commission. Kassmel expects the town’s Design Review Board to approve phase two at its Dec. 1 meeting.
“Then we can start construction documents and submit for a building permit early next year,” Kassmel said.
