Public Works Projects
SPRING GULCH #2 PHASE 1
DRAINAGE AND GREENWAY IMPROVEMENT PROJECT -The City of Longmont Public Works and Natural Resources Department is preparing to begin work installing a new box culvert/pedestrian underpass across State Highway 119. Construction will begin the week of October 21and is expected to be completed by the end of June 2014.
The project primarily involves installation of a new pedestrian underpass across State Highway 119 at the Spring Gulch crossing, approximately 3/4 mile east of County Line Road. Included in this work will be the installation of a new concrete walkway along the north side of SH 119 connecting this new pedestrian underpass to Third Avenue. Improvements to the intersection of County Line Road and SH 119 will also be occurring.
Construction will initially be occurring across the east bound lanes of SH 119. Temporary bypass lanes will be constructed to allow traffic unrestricted movement through the construction area. The speed limit on SH 119, both east and west bound through this construction zone will be reduced to 45 MPH.
A portion of the Sandstone Ranch Park greenway trail on the south side of SH 119 will be closed during this construction. The portion of the trail to be closed connects the parking lot on the north side of the ball fields off of Zlaten Drive to the skate park at Sandstone Ranch. A detour access to the Sandstone Ranch Park from Zlaten Drive will be provided.
All accesses to businesses and residents will remain open. In the unlikely event that an access requires temporary closure due to the construction, notice of the closure will be issued prior to any work being done to interfere with this access.
Your patience and tolerance toward our efforts to improve pedestrian safety with this drainage and greenway improvement project are sincerely appreciated. Every effort will be made to minimize any inconvenience caused by this work. The Contractor on this project will be New Design Construction.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact Curtis Ansel, Project Manager, City of Longmont Public Works and Natural Resources Department at (303)651-8310 or by email at email@example.com.
9th Avenue - Martin Street to Lashley Sidewalk Improvements - The City of Longmont Public Works and Natural Resources Division will soon begin work on sidewalk improvements to the south side of 9th Avenue from Martin Street to Lashley Street. Construction will begin September, 2013 and is estimated to be completed by the end of November.
The project involves construction along the south side of 9th Avenue from Martin Street to Lashley. Included in this work is the installation of a new curb attached sidewalk, realignment of the south curb line of 9th Avenue, reconstruction of the southwest corner of the Martin/9th Avenue intersection and minor utility work.
Construction will be occurring on the south half of 9th Avenue primarily between Martin and Lashley. During this time, the construction traffic control that will be in place during this project will shift all east bound traffic between Martin and Lashley to the north, thereby reducing traffic flow to one lane each direction, east and west. All accesses to businesses and residents will remain open. Questions can be addressed to Curtis Ansel, Project Manager, at (303)651-8310 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
