Utilities Division

We received 418 locate requests in April alone compared with 2018 when we had 3,284 total locate requests.

As a Tier One member of The Utility Notification Center of Colorado (811) we are required to respond to all of these requests.

Street Closures

  • Overhead to underground electric utility work is expected to begin April 12 and last until approximately May 17  for the new subdivision at Ulysses and 10th Avenue. One lane will be closed when this work begins.
  • Arapahoe Street, between 13th and 14th Streets (in front of Calvary Episcopal Church), is closed for construction activities lasting possibly until June 3. Parking spaces will also be lost during this time.
  • The closure of 17th between Washington to Jackson for construction staging and access for CSM’s new project at 1750 Jackson St has been extended.
  • Jackson from 17th to 18th will have one lane closed for 5 days beginning on May 2. They are doing a concrete deck pour and will be staging trucks on Jackson.
  • Parking on 12th will be limited between Washington and Jackson due to construction activities at Buffalo Rose and Tributary. Dumpsters will occupy parking spots on both sides of 12th between May 6 and 21.
  • Parking lanes and sidewalks may be impacted this week in the area of 831 Pine Ridge Rd. due to the installation of water and sanitary sewer services.
  • On May 22, 14th St from Cheyenne to Arapahoe will be impacted. A crane will be in the street to aid in replacing cooling towers on a building.
  • May 23-31, a transformer will be installed and parking lanes on 14th St from Arapahoe to Washington will be impacted. No weekend work is expected.
  • May 20-24, parking lanes on W. 4th Ave from Homestead Cir to Heritage Rd will be impacted. Work needs to be done on a utility pole on the south side of W. 4th.

Washington Complete Street Project

Paving in Phase 3 (2nd Street to 6th Street) began Friday – completion is dependent on weather.  Striping in Phase 3 is scheduled for the week of the 20th.   (Again, dependent on weather.)

Remaining work in phase 4 (ramps at HWY 58) is scheduled for the week of the 20th.

We anticipate all phases of the project to be wrapped up by the end of June.

Please contact John Hardy (303) 384-8195 or Dan Hartman (303) 384-8150 if you have any questions.

Utility Rate Citizen’s Committee Meeting

The second meeting of the Utility Rate Study Citizen’s Committee took place on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 6 p.m. The next meeting will take place April 16. All URCC meetings take place at the PW/Planning Building at 1445 10th Street and the public is welcome. The first meeting will include an overview of the three city-owned utilities, a history of rates and a description of the current rate structures, and the objectives of the rate study. For more information please contact Anne Beierle 303-384-8153.

ACEC Award Finalist

The City learned that the Linking Lookout interchange project has been selected as one of 16 finalist for project of the year by the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC). The finalist awards will be announced at the ACEC annual conference in Washington D.C. on May 7, 2019. Getting to the finales is a big achievement because the project is competing against engineering projects from all areas like transit, airports, structures, highways, bridges seaports etc. Just to win in Colorado to advance to the national competition we had to beat projects like the new CSU football stadium, the 40 story 1144 fifteenth building in Denver, the I-70 Mountain Corridor project, The RTD Westminster Station Park among others. Moving on to the national finals is quite an honor.
