2019 Street Improvement Updates

August 2, 2019

Construction has begun on this year’s street improvement project which covers the Partridge Estates and Heather Ridge neighborhoods. The improvements include miscellaneous storm sewer/sanitary sewer/water main repairs and replacement, replacement of isolated sections of structurally damaged curb and gutter, repaving of the asphalt pavement section, and installation of uniform street lighting. It also includes replacing the top surface of pavement on Helmo Avenue from 15th Street to Upper 23rd Street.
T.A. Schifsky & Sons, Inc. is the Contractor for this project. They have successfully completed many similar projects for the City.  This work will be done in phases by area to help minimize disruption. All project work is scheduled to be complete by early September.

Project Areas:

Current and Planned Work

Partridge Estates Area

  • Lighting work should be complete next week. Xcel Energy then needs to complete the power connections so the system can be turned on.
  • Boulevard sodding will be done next-the landscaping crew is now working on other parts of the project and will then continue in this area.

Heather Ridge Area

  • Concrete curb and gutter spot removals are planned to begin next Monday and new curb is planned for Tuesday and Wednesday on the south end of this area. This is the last phase.
  • The remaining streets on the south end are planned to be reclaimed into gravel the week of August 12th.
  • Lighting work is now complete in this area. Xcel Energy now needs to complete the power connections so the system can be turned on.
  • The Dog Park on Helena Road is closed now for improvements. This installation of a drinking fountain and concrete sidewalk is planned for next week. The parking lot paving and fencing will follow as crews are available. We apologize for the inconvenience, but it is for the safety of people and their pets while this work is done. 
  • Xcel Gas crews are doing their own grass restoration with seeding and fiber mulch.

Helmo Avenue mill & overlay

  • Boulevard restoration with topsoil and sod is being completed now.
  • The top layer of asphalt pavement is planned to be milled next Tuesday and Wednesday and to be repaved on Thursday.
As construction progresses, please use caution traveling within the project area.  Also, please do not park vehicles on the street from 7AM to 7PM within the project area unless instructed to by the Contractor to accommodate driveway work. This will help the Contractor to work more efficiently, and will create a safer work zone. Thank you, as always, for your ongoing patience and cooperation.
