College Avenue Waterline Replacement Project

Project Purpose

Fort Collins Utilities replaced a 1930s 4-inch cast iron waterline in College Avenue from Mulberry to Buckeye streets (one block south of Pitkin Street) with 8-inch polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe.

Replacement of the 80-year old waterline enhances water system reliability and improves fire protection in the area. The project occurred in advance of the anticipated Highway 287 (College Avenue) Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) paving project in 2015.

Key Facts

  • Trenchless technologies were used to minimize overall construction and traffic impacts.
  • Cross streets affected by the construction included Myrtle, Laurel, Garfield, Edwards, Pitkin and Buckeye Streets.
  • College Avenue and affected side streets have been repaved following construction.
