Weekly Construction Update
May 15-19, 2017
Closures & Delays
This past week, concrete work continued in the 5th and 6th Street blocks with curb, gutter and sidewalk installations. Phase II work included moving a fire hydrant at the 11th Street intersection and storm sewer installations also completed in that area. Backfill was placed at the new retaining wall at Meat & Seafood as crews work toward pouring a new concrete patio.
Phase II: Also continuing the week of May 15, Yampa Street remains closed to vehicular traffic between the intersections at 10th and 12th Streets as crews continue work to install a new concrete raised intersection at 11th Street. The 10th and 12th Street intersections will remain open to vehicular traffic. This closure is expected to last until early June.
Bi-Weekly Public Informational Meetings will run every other Friday starting at 9am in Centennial Hall where city staff and contractors share details about the status of the project. The next meeting will be held on May 19.
