expect some serious constuction on College Avenue soon. Fort Collins Utilities will be replacing the 1930′s 4-inch cast iron waterline in College Avenue from Buckeye Street (one block south of Pitkin Street) to Mulberry Street with 8-inch PVC pipe. Beginning Tuesday, May 27, construction will begin at Mulberry Street, and will move south.

The project will improve water quality, increase fire protection and enhance water-system reliability. This work is being done in advance of the 2015 CDOT Highway 287 paving project from Berthoud to north of Fort Collins.

STUFF YOU SHOULD KNOW

  • Trenchless technologies will be used to minimize overall construction and traffic impacts when possible.
  • Local businesses will remain open.
  • Pedestrian access will be available at all times.
  • Cross streets affected by the construction include Myrtle, Laurel, Garfield, Edwards, Pitkin and Buckeye Streets.
  • College Avenue and affected side streets will be repaved following construction.
  • Periodic disruptions to water service will be necessary. You will be notified prior to shutoff.
