Eastern Area 2 Concrete, Paving and Utility Project – Phase 2:
Note: Canyon Road between 15th and 9th Street is closed to through traffic. Due to the significant amount of work and equipment in the roadway, non-resident motorists are asked to avoid the construction area and seek alternate routes.
Weather permitting, the second mat of pavement will be placed on Canyon Road between 15th Street and Nugget on Tuesday, Aug. 20. Expect significant construction traffic. Residential access in the immediate area will be provided; all other motorists should seek alternate routes. Expect lane closures and flagging operations with the potential for delays. Please do not walk or drive on the fresh pavement until the barriers are removed. Fresh pavement is very hot and can melt shoes and damage tires.
15th remains closed between Canyon and Sage north. 15th is also closed between Oakwood north and Oakwood south for the utility tie-ins. Sage will be open on Monday. Trenching for utility work continues on 15th Street progressing south of the Oakwood Loop; expect continued lane closures with flagging operations and detours as work progresses through side street intersections.
Quartz will open on Monday; Rim will be closed during paving operations. Opal remains closed. Nugget remains closed for valley gutter installations.
On Verde Ridge and Arroyo Lane, the contractor will begin roadbed preparation the week of Aug. 19.
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. This service for pedestrians will continue until sidewalks are open on at least one side 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.
Western Area Phase 1:
43rd Street remains closed to through traffic on both sides of Trinity. Roadbed and curb and gutter preparations will begin on 43rd north of Trinity. Paving operations will occur on 43rd south of Trinity on Monday, Aug. 19; expect heavy truck traffic and possible delays. Depending on progress, paving operations might continue until 7:30 p.m. Monday.
Potholing to verify utility locations will occur on 44th Street on Monday, but should not affect traffic. 44th Street will be closed to through traffic starting on Wednesday, for full width milling operations.
Access to residences as well as services such as mail delivery, emergency services, and trash and recycling collection will be maintained. Residents are asked to maximize use of off-street parking. Any necessary on-street parking should be away from the active work zones. Typical work hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. with possible weekend work if necessary.
Cañada del Buey Multi-Use Trail Improvements:
The contractor continues to work on the Longview corridor from Bonnie View to Rover. Paving of the pathway will start Monday and continue through Wednesday. During paving operations, expect a lane drop on Longview with flagging operations; use of alternate routes is recommended whenever possible. Please watch for trucks and equipment in the work area and be prepared for possible delays.
Canyon Glen Bridge Safety Attenuators:
Work continues on the installation of the new attenuators. Vehicular traffic is not impacted; however, pedestrians are asked to use the provided pedestrian pathway.
