In coordination with The District at Campus West development on Plum Street, Fort Collins Utilities will remove, replace and up-size portions of the existing sanitary sewer line and storm drainage system along Plum and Shields Streets and City Park Avenue. Local businesses will still be open during construction.
The existing 8- and 10-inch sanitary sewer will be up-sized to 12-inch polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe from Shields Street to north of City Park Avenue, approximately 530 lineal feet. A total of 13 manholes will be installed.
Storm Drainage System
To help mitigate existing flooding issues on Plum Street, the storm drainage system will be up-sized. It will be moved to the east side on Shields Street and approximately 230 lineal feet of 36-inch PVC pipe will be installed from the intersection of Shields and Plum Streets south along Shields Street. A combination of 21- and 30-inch PVC pipe totaling 570 lineal feet, will be installed along Plum Street stopping at Aster Street. Two 10-foot stormwater drainage inlets will be installed on Plum Street near Aster Street, and five manholes will be installed.
The total estimated work time in Shields Street is a minimum of five weeks, four weeks to install the new pipe and one week to parch and pave the street. Once the work into Plum Street is completed, the sanitary and storm drainage system work will be done at the same time in Plum Street and will take approximately six weeks.
Safety for residents, commuters, bike riders, pedestrians and work crews is top 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 detours.
