Recovery & Capital Projects Update
McConnell Bridge and Ponds Update
McConnell Bridge has been designed up to 30% and is waiting for FEMA to approve the bridge and road design. Upon FEMA's approval, the final design – which will include paving McConnell Drive – will be completed, and construction will be scheduled.
FEMA has been made aware that this project is Town’s first priority. Updates will be sent following FEMA’s response.
The McConnell Ponds are a part of the final Parks Flood Recovery project, following LaVern M. Johnson and Bohn Park. Currently, LaVern Johnson Park is anticipated to be complete by the end of Summer 2016, and depending on cash flow, construction for Bohn Park is anticipated to begin Fall 2016. Once Bohn Park construction is complete, the final design for the McConnell Ponds will be prepared and construction will follow.
Main St. Streetscape
Through the end of July, work on the Main St. Streetscape project will include landscaping, curb, gutter, sidewalks, and turn lane islands at the US 36/Stone Canyon traffic signal, and the first stages of sidewalk installation along the south side of East Main.
Slow for Road Work
As the road work and construction projects are underway, the safety of the work crews remain the first priority of Town and its contractors. Please be vigilant of the crews, and drive slowly through the work zones.
Expect the Unexpected:
- Workers, work vehicles, or equipment may enter your lane without warning
- Other vehicles may slow, stop, or change lanes unexpectedly
Thank you for helping our crews stay safe.
Confluence Area CIP UpdateXcel's contractor, Sitewise, is set to finish gas line installation this week. Following gas line completion, DeFalco will pour curb and gutter and lay asphalt, after initial prep work. Project leads estimate roughly 2-3 more months of work, once DeFalco begins.
The final round of planting and revegetation along the creek will begin the week of July 18, and take approximately two weeks to complete. Following the revegetation, an irrigation system along the banks will be implemented.
We Need Your Help!
During this time, please consider the delicacy of the new plantlings - give them a chance of survival by staying off newly vegetated areas.
We sincerely appreciate your support in this effort.
