Major Construction Projects in the City of Fort Collins#
Safety and infrastructure projects improve our whole community. Here is a up-to-date look at the construction currently happening across Fort Collins.
Projects Currently in Construction#
Laporte Avenue Bridge Replacement
Current bridge replacement project will make way for larger roadway improvements focused on vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian safety along the Laporte Avenue corridor.
Timberline Road Widening
This project will reduce congestion, improve safety, and enhance bike and pedestrian connections along Timberline.
SWAP Replacements Resume in the Downtown Area
Starting in June, Utilities will remove and replace 53 lead components in the residential downtown area. Studies have shown that lead goosenecks have little to no impact on lead levels in drinking water due to the small volume of water in a gooseneck and the effectiveness of our long-standing corrosion control methods. SWAP accelerates the identification and replacement of any remaining galvanized and/or lead goosenecks in our water system.
Grant Avenue & Washington Street Water System Improvements
A full closure of Washington Street, Grant Avenue and the 700-800 block alley will be in place during construction from Mountain to Laporte avenues. It is anticipated that the closures will be phased as construction progresses. Access for local residents will remain open, but may be limited at times.
Prospect Road Projects
A number of projects are scheduled along Prospect Road in spring and summer 2023. These include:
- A Utilities project from Robertson Street to Lemay Avenue
- Work at the pedestrian and bicycle underpass at Center Avenue
- Paving work from Timberline Road to Sharp Point Drive

The City Streets Department will be making improvements to the Mason Street corridor in Summer 2023.
