Denver Water’s contractor has received all permits from the city and the project work will begin starting 11/20. The prep work for the project which includes road closures and putting up street work will begin Monday Nov. 20 and asphalt removal on 29th street is expected to start on Wednesday Nov. 22. The attached map image shows the location of the project, highlighted in red. The majority of the construction impacts will be along West 29th Avenue, starting at Federal Boulevard and at North Umatilla Street.
Traffic impacts through the construction zones are as follows:
- West 29th Avenue, between Federal Boulevard and North Umatilla Street, will have one lane open in each direction, with traffic lanes shifted to the north. There will not be designated bike lanes, and street parking will be closed. These closures are in effect for the duration of the project.
- Construction work will take place weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with some weekend and evening work. When there is weekend/evening work, there will be detours and closed turn lanes along Federal Boulevard and Speer Boulevard at the intersections north and south of West 29th Avenue.
One additional phase of pipe installation will occur on 15th Street from Boulder Street to Central Street, and on Central Street from 15th Street to 16th Street.
