Stover & Stuart Stormwater Improvement Project#
Construction Begins October 3
- Phase 1 will be on Stover Street between Parker Street to
the intersection of East Stuart Street.
- Phase 2 will be on East Stuart Street in the 600 block.
- Phase 3 will be on East Stuart Street from the 600 block and into
the 700 block, including the intersection and corner of Stover Street.
Starting in October, Utilities crews will begin a three-phase project to upgrade and improve the stormwater system for the surrounding neighborhoods near Stover and Stuart streets. Crews will initially begin working on Stover Street between Parker and East Stuart streets. This project will improve capacity in the stormwater drainage system and increase flood protection in the area. Work is anticipated to last through the end of December, weather permitting.
Normal work hours will be Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Project Overview & Outcome#
What to Expect#
- The stormwater work will impact east and west bound Parker Street and north and south bound Mathews Street traffic, including access to driveways and alleys.
- Pedestrian access in the area will be maintained.
- Throughout the project, you can expect heavy machinery, construction-related traffic, and stockpiles of materials.
- Trash services and mail delivery will continue to be provided and any needed alterations to school bus routes will be coordinated with Poudre School District.
These are general images from Utilities construction projects - this page will be updated with project photos as they are available.
Roads and intersections are closed for safety and to complete the job as efficiently as possible. Barricades and fences will be used to clearly mark areas of excavation at nights and on weekends. Detour routes will be provided as needed. Please keep children and pets away from construction zones.
Safety for crews and residents is our top priority and we need your help. Please adhere to all posted signage and do not enter the construction areas. Our goal is to keep everyone safe while working efficiently. It is very difficult for crews to see pedestrians, bikers and small children when operating heavy equipment.
