Bureau of Reclamation Neighborhood Project
The Town of Estes Park Water Division will begin the second phase of the Reclamation neighborhood water line replacement project in October. This phase will consist of the installation of new water mains on Fifth Street, Fourth Street and along Highway 36 from Fourth Street through First Street, as well as the installation new fire hydrants. Through traffic will be detoured but local access will be maintained at all times. Motorists are asked to drive safely through the work zone and watch for changing detour signage. Work will begin on Fourth Street, followed by Fifth Street and then along U.S. 36 from Fourth through First Streets. The work for this phase will begin the first week of October and is expected to continue into 2019, weather permitting.
Neighborhood residents have been contacted via letter. No significant water outages are anticipated in the neighborhood. Staff will communicate directly with residents about any property-specific impacts.
Project updates and schedules will be posted to www.estes.org/
1/8/19 Update - The installation of the new water main on Fifth Street will begin Monday, January 14. Traffic will be diverted as necessary and all affected residents will be contacted personally regarding any service interuptions.
