Tag-team projects by Utilities, city on 2 sections of 21st Street through fallApril 6, 2018
The schedule for major projects on two segments of 21st Street has been tightened up. Work started in early March and is predicted to continue at first one and then another location into the fall.
Each project includes a water-main replacement by Colorado Springs Utilities, as well as concrete upgrades and a concluding street overlay by
Because this part of 21st is likely to be a major access for people going to the Senior Open Golf tournament at the Broadmoor June 28 to July 1, the government plan is to have it fully paved beforehand.
As previously outlined by project manager Ryan Phipps of City Engineering, the non-Utilities share of the work is slated to pick up in June and last throughout the summer, with paving anticipated between September and October.
In addition to concrete upgrades and paving, the project calls for maintenance of the 21st Street traffic bridge over Fountain Creek and construction of a concrete “multi-use path” between the current 21st Street Midland Trail terminus and Highway 24. Funded by the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority, the path is to include an 8-foot-wide swath on the east side of the bridge that's currently used by cars.
