Relocation work for Larimer County Canal No. 2 between West Monroe Drive to south of West Foothills Parkway will begin Monday, January 20. This section of the canal runs between southbound College Avenue and Frontage Road West. This relocation project will make room for a pedestrian/bicyclist underpass under College Avenue.

Construction is scheduled to occur in phases starting at West Monroe Street and moving north over the next three months into early April. The scope of work includes site preparation, excavation, utility relocation, new canal construction, and surface improvements. The relocation will require the removal of trees located in the median to the east of the frontage road. The trees will be chipped on site for mulch to be used later in landscaping projects.

College Avenue will remain open to traffic over the duration of construction, although lane restrictions will be in place. Southbound vehicular traffic will be reduced to two lanes of traffic. Frontage Road West will be closed in sections. Access to businesses will be maintained at all times.

Project dates are estimates based on favorable conditions; variances may occur due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Work Zone Information

Typical working hours are weekdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.; however construction may occur outside these times or on the weekends to expedite the work. Road closures and lane drops will be used as needed.
