The City of Durango and its contractor will conduct maintenance and repairs to a sewer main under Narrow Gauge Avenue from 8th Street to just north of 12th Street. The project begins on Monday, September 28 with completion expected at the end of November.
The City will install a liner in the existing sewer main to restore pipeline integrity and will conduct repairs on manholes. Most work will be done from within existing manholes, but open trench work is required for a short section of new sewer line and a new manhole north of 12th Street.
There will be a brief interruption to sewer service for each block as the liner is installed. The contractor will notify affected customers in advance, and service will be restored the same day. Construction noise is expected, and there will be periodic street closures with detours around the active construction area. Up to one full block could be closed to through traffic at a time; metered parking along Narrow Gauge will not be available during these detours. Please obey construction signage to ensure safety of workers and the traveling public.
Trash service and deliveries should not be affected, and parking lots and garages will remain accessible during construction. Affected customers will be notified if adjustments to these services are necessary.
Construction hours are Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The City appreciates the patience of businesses and citizens during this project to improve services for customers. For more information, call (970) 764-5698.
