Fort Collins Utilities is replacing the 80-year-old 4-inch cast iron waterline in College Avenue from Mulberry to Buckeye Streets (one block south of Pitkin Street) with 8-inch PVC pipe. Beginning Tues., May 27, construction will begin at Mulberry Street, 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.
Safety for residents, commuters, bike riders, pedestrians and work crews is a priority. Barricades and fences will be used to clearly mark areas of excavation that will be fenced off at night and on weekends. For your safety, stay away from these areas and follow all signage instructions.
