Motorists should plan for a single lane closure on August 9, 10 and 11 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day while Johnson Construction crews install the new water supply pipe across Midland Avenue. Please plan extra travel time through the area. Learn more on the project webpage at www.cogs.us/RFPumpStation.
After this work, crews move up the switchback trail, cut across Red Mountain Drive and then parallel West 9th Street towards the water treatment plant. In September, there will be an approximately two-week, continuous Red Mountain trailhead parking closure to install the new line and restore the area. Pedestrian access to the trail will be maintained.
Switchback Trail Closure
For the Roaring Fork Pump Station Pipe project construction, the switchback portion of Red Mountain Trail between Midland Avenue and Red Mountain Drive will be closed beginning the week of August 9 and will remain closed for approximately one month. For alternate access to the Red Mountain / Jeanne Golay Trail, use 10th Street or Red Mountain Drive.
About the Roaring Fork Pump Station project
This project is to construct a secondary supply pipe from the Roaring Fork Pump Station to the Red Mountain Water Plant and mixing vault at the plant. This 24” diameter line will create a redundant line to the plant from the pump station, which will help make the City more drought resistant in the future by providing three sources of water to the system instead of one or two and will allow for maintenance of the raw water lines to the water treatment plant.
