Construction has begun on N 5th between Townsend Avenue and Park Avenue. The project includes multiple aspects including waterline replacement, curb and gutter replacement, and asphalt replacement.
The first phase currently underway includes the replacement of all waterline infrastructure between Cascade and Park Avenue. This work will result in temporary water outages along the project area as water service is switched from the old waterline to temporary water services, and then back to the new permanent water. Water service outages should be minor.
Following the waterline installation removals of failed curb and gutter and asphalt will begin between Townsend and Park Ave. To address drainage issues in the area all curb and gutter is required to be replaced between Park and Uncompahgre, along with the burn and gutter between Cascade and Townsend.
After all removals are complete a new asphalt driving surface will be placed. This work is scheduled to be complete by the start of the school year at North Side Elementary School in August.
