College Drive Lane Closures Expected During Traffic Signal Pole Replacement

Community Development

The City of Durango has contracted with Bixby Electric for a traffic signal pole replacement project at the southeast corner of College Drive and East 3rd Avenue. The project will start Thursday, May 16, 2019, and is anticipated to conclude by May 24. Eastbound traffic will be reduced to one lane and the traffic control will be set at 8:30 a.m. and removed by 4:30 p.m. to reduce impacts during peak traffic periods.

The traffic signal pole was structurally damaged when struck by a vehicle requiring its replacement.  The pole and arm installation will also allow the curb and sidewalk to be brought up to current ADA standards.

Pedestrian traffic will be diverted to the north side of College Drive around the construction site using traffic control signs. Motorist are encouraged to use caution when traveling in the area.

For more information, please contact City Engineer, Gregg Boysen at (970) 375-4819.
