Arthur Ditch at Loomis and Olive Street Improvements


The City of Fort Collins plans to reconstruct the structurally deficient bridge at Loomis and Olive Street in winter of 2016. The bridge is part of the Arthur Ditch irrigation system that runs through Old Town Fort Collins. The section of bridge that lies beneath the public rights of way is approximately 300’ in length at this location.  Over the next several months the City will conduct construction activities in partnership with Connell Resources, Inc. within this area to replace the bridge. When complete, the bridges will be able to support all vehicles which frequent the roadways.
