Arthur Ditch at Mountain Avenue
and Myrtle Street Improvements

 

The Project

The City of Fort Collins plans to reconstruct two structurally deficient bridges; one which crosses beneath Mountain Avenue approximately 270’ east of Whitcomb Street and the other beneath Myrtle Street approximately 140’ east of Sherwood Street.  Over the next several months the City will conduct construction activities within these areas to reconstruct the bridges. When complete, the bridges will be able to support all vehicles which frequent the roadways.
