  • From City Council District #6 regarding 2400 S University project for the week of October 10th:
    • The placement of elevated deck concrete forms and reinforcing steel are all continuing this week.  This will require deliveries of form material and reinforcing material on a daily basis.  All deliveries  will be entering and exiting from either the mid-point of our site, off of University or from Harvard at the South end of the project.  This work will be continuous through the month of October, 2016.

    • The removal/backfilling of the shoring system and repairing of waterproofing along the Alley is in progress.  This will involve the daily removal and reinstallation of sections of the fence  along the alley.  Access will be maintained at all times in the alley.  Vehicle and pedestrian traffic in the alley will be monitored by flaggers.

    • We are scheduled to make our next placement of concrete elevated decks on  Thursday October 13th, weather and permit approval pending.  This will involve concrete trucks making deliveries to the site and the staging of a concrete pump trucks along University Blvd.  Two-way traffic will be maintained on University at all times.  Vehicle and pedestrian traffic will be monitored by flaggers.

    • The installation of the site utilities along University Blvd and Harvard Ave is in progress this week.  This will involve  excavating portions of University for connections to the new 8 inch water main and connections to the storm sewer system along Harvard Ave.  This work will require the closure of two lanes of traffic on University Blvd.  Two-way traffic will be maintained on University at all times. Shut offs and interruptions of utility services may begin this week depending on the week's production and weather.  Notification will be provided to businesses and residents prior to the scheduled interruptions in service.

    • Please note: Weather and Permit approval pending, we will be closing lanes of University every day of this week.  We are working closely with the City of Denver Right-of-way Services department.  All lane closures and traffic control will be carefully coordinated and maintained.
