Development Updates
Downtown Durango Hotel (E 2nd Avenue and E 5th Street)

Construction has started for the Downtown Durango Hotel (E 2nd Avenue between E 4th and E 5th Streets). The City will utilize this webpage to provide up to date information on the construction process.  If you would like additional information on this project, call (970)-375-4850. 

LPEA Work in the Alley

The LPEA work in the alley has started and is progressing slower than anticipated.  It will tentatively be completed around mid-November. 

Construction can occur between the hours of 7:00am and 7:00pm daily.  Canyon Construction is doing the excavation. LPEA is relocating the overhead electrical cables to a trench. 

Traffic Control will be provided along E 5th Street and in the alley during the construction times. Neighbors that need to access their garages during construction times will be accommodated as much as possible on a case by case basis.
The alley will be asphalt patched after this phase is complete and will be repaved at end of the hotel project completion.

There was some damage to the City's sewer main in the alley during this phase of construction, but City crews got it repaired quickly. 

On-Site Excavation, Shoring and Dirt Hauling

Now that the E 2nd Avenue/College Drive signal is completed, the City has issued
an On-Site Excavation and Shoring Permit that allows the development team to start hauling dirt from the site and start shoring up the alley.

The full trucks will leave the site on E 2nd Avenue and go down to the new signal at E 2nd Avenue and College Drive.  They will turn left onto College Drive and head west towards Camino del Rio.  Once at the highway, they will turn left and head south on the Highway.

Empty trucks will utilize 8th Avenue to College Drive and will turn left from College Drive onto E 2nd Avenue to access the site. 

Depending upon the weather, the hauling will take a few months.
