Plum Street Sanitary & Storm Drainage Improvements Project

Updates & Road Closures

  • Private construction work continues on both City Park Avenue and Plum Street.
  • Remaining construction and road closures are related to these separate projects.
  • All construction work related to Fort Collins Utilities has been completed.

In coordination with The District at Campus West development on Plum Street, Fort Collins Utilities removed, replaced and up-sized portions of the existing sanitary sewer line and storm drainage system along Plum and Shields Streets and City Park Avenue..

Sanitary Sewer
The old 8- and 10-inch sanitary sewer were 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 were installed.

Storm Drainage System
To help mitigate existing flooding issues on Plum Street, the storm drainage system also was up-sized. It was moved to the east side on Shields Street and approximately 230 lineal feet of 36-inch PVC pipe was 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, was installed along Plum Street to Aster Street. Two 10-foot stormwater drainage inlets were installed on Plum Street near Aster Street, and five manholes were installed.

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.
