College Avenue Construction
Summer is a great time for road and utility construction, but it can be tough on a business. Help support the businesses impacted by construction projects this summer, in particular the businesses along College Avenue where Fort Collins Utilities is replacing the 80-year-old 4-inch cast iron waterline from Mulberry to Buckeye Streets (one block south of Pitkin Street) with 8-inch PVC pipe. Construction started at Mulberry Street and is working south. Local businesses will remain open. Pedestrian access will be available at all times. The project will improve water quality, increase fire protection and enhance water-system reliability. This work is being done in advance of the 2015 CDOT Highway 287 paving project from Berthoud to north of Fort Collins.
