Significant infrastructure improvements are on the horizon as construction for the River Road Interceptor Project is set to begin on Monday, August 19, 2019.
The project will begin in the Howelsen Hill parking lot moving south along Howelsen Parkway and River Road where the project will end near the Parks & Recreation office building prior to reaching Agate Street.
The $1.68M project will include the installation of a larger sanitary sewer main to replace an aged and undersized system, a sidewalk to connect 5th Street to Agate Street, two separate fiber optic conduit systems and a stormwater system.
The new sewer main will consist of approximately 3,700 linear feet of 24-inch PVC pipe and manholes. The city anticipates no interruption of sewer services throughout the construction phase.
Duckels Constructions began work earlier this week preparing for sidewalk installation in front of the Howelsen Ice Complex and anticipates the bulk of the work to run from September through October, with full project completion by November 1, 2019. Traffic delays, road closures and detours should be expected during the course of the project.
Crews are operating from 7am to 7pm, Monday through Friday. Weekend work must be approved and will be communicated in advance.
