Verde Ridge & Arroyo Lane Milling:
RMCI will mill Verde Ridge and Arroyo Lane on Monday, July 1. Work will start at approximately 8:30 a.m. and should end by 5 p.m. During this time all vehicles must be off the street in parking stalls or other off-street parking. Residential access will be maintained. Expect flagging operations; and, please allow extra travel time due to the potential for delays.
Eastern Area 2 Concrete, Paving & Utility Project – Phase 2:
If milling on 15th Street is not completed on Saturday, work will continue on Monday, July 1. Motorists can expect significant traffic control starting south of the Central/15th intersection extending north to Canyon Road. Work will occur with lane closures and flagging operations as needed. The work will be completed in four passes. Once milling is complete, trenching for utility work will begin on the north end of 15th Street; this work will require lane closures. Please use caution when traveling this busy intersection and pay attention to traffic control devices within the work areas. When possible, motorists are urged to seek alternate routes.
RMCI continues to use a 15-passenger van to transport pedestrians through the Canyon Road construction site. The van circulates every 5 to 7 minutes while RMCI is working, typically 7 a.m. to 5-7 p.m. depending on the job activity, Monday through Saturday (RMCI will work Saturdays in June). This service for pedestrians will continue until sidewalks are open on both sides of Canyon. Each evening, RMCI will re-establish the pedestrian paths for use.
The van route starts at 9th Street and Canyon Road continuing north on Canyon, making the Nugget, Opal and Piñon Loops. Pedestrians on Nugget, Opal, and Piñon Loops will be picked up in front of their residence. Additional stops include the Pine Street cul-de-sac and Quartz at 6th Street. The route will end at Canyon and 15th Street. The driver will then turn around and repeat the route in the opposite direction. Pedestrians are asked to use the van service provided.
Canyon Road between 15th and Rim Road remains closed; the closure may shift as work progresses. Residential access in the immediate closure area will be provided; all other motorists should seek alternate routes.
Canyon Road traffic between Nugget and Rim Road can expect daytime flagging operations with minor delays. Two-way traffic will be restored in this area in the evenings and weekends when work is not occurring.
Western Area Phase 1:
RMCI plans to mill a portion of 43rd Street north of Trinity starting on Monday. The milling will enable the utility trench work to begin. Flyers have been distributed to residents on 43rd Street.
