Water Projects

Rockwell Water Main Upgrade Project

The Town of Estes Park’s Water Division will begin upgrades to a water main downtown in mid-October. The project will be completed in phases to occur through January 2020, tentatively, causing rolling closures of parking areas and traffic lanes along Rockwell Street, within the Post Office parking lot, Ivy Street and West Riverside Drive. The water main upgrades are necessary to increase fire protection capacity to the core of downtown, including installation of three new hydrants. The upgraded main will also provide better flow for water customers located on the north end of the distribution system. All dates and locations are weather-permitting and subject to change. Updates will be added to this page as they become available. Please contact Brenda Wyss, Water Division Administraive Assistant, at 970-577-3619 or bwyss@estes.org to address any further questions.

1/10/2020 - UPDATE - Ivy Street and West Riverside Drive will be closed Wednesday, January 15, 2020 through Friday, January 16, 2020 for the completion of the third phase of the project. Ivy Street will be re-opened by January 20, 2020 and from that point on only West Riverside Drive will be closed for the remainder of the project. Access will be provided to local traffic only. Please utilize alternate routes during this time. Thank you.
