Yampa Street construction project moves into second week 28.5.2016 Steamboat Pilot
So far, Yampa Street construction work has impacted one business, but the owner remains optimistic. "The end result is going to be great," Steamboat Meat and Seafood owner Billy Hamil said Friday. He said lunch business has been down 25 percent during the first week of construction, which closed Yampa in front of his building so a new sewer main can be installed.

Hamil said customers can access his business between 11th and 10th streets by using the adjacent parking lot or going through the alley.

Work is taking place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday ...

With two outs in the second inning and a pitcher with a .089 career average at the plate, an announcer can usually start thinking about the transition to the commercial break.

But once Colon took a mighty cut with a 1-1 count, Cohen recalled Sunday morning, “it was insta...
