Long Road Reconstruction
The Long Road Reconstruction Project will begin the week of April 10, 2017 and is scheduled to be complete the week of December 10, 2017. The original bids received in May 2016 were rejected due to poor bidder participation and high bid prices. In an effort to obtain better participation and pricing, the project was rebid in January 2017. Rebidding the project resulted in a cost savings of $2.1 M, for a total projected project cost of $5.8 M, which includes Southgate’s water line improvements of $1.1M. Duran Excavating Inc. submitted the qualified low bid and will be performing the work.
Please visit the Construction Page for the current full closure location.
Due to the nature of the work and the limited width of the right-of-way, the road will be closed so that the project can be completed in a safe and efficient manner. Signs will be placed at the intersections of Holly/Orchard and University/Orchard to advise through traffic to use either Arapahoe or Belleview as an alternate route. The closure segments within the project limits will occur in phases, with each phase typically extending between the two nearest side street intersections.
