Creating beautifully landscaped, environmentally sensitive, neighborhood, bicycle and pedestrian friendly streets.
NOTE: All work is weather permitting and is subject to change without notice

Construction begins Monday, Nov. 8 in Work Zone 1 (see map below). During construction, Coal Ave. SE will be closed to thru traffic from I-25 to Washington Street, with only local traffic allowed. Thru traffic will be shifted to Lead Ave. with one lane of traffic in each direction. FOR SAFETY REASONS AND TO KEEP TRAFFIC FLOWING ON LEAD, traffic will only be able to turn left at four intersections with working traffic signals: 1) Lead at University; 2) Lead at Yale; 3) Lead at Girard; and 4) Lead at Carlisle. Two crews will begin work at Coal and I-25 and at Coal and University. Regular work hours will be Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m., although crews may work longer hours or on weekends as needed. Construction in Work Zone 1 is expected to last through late March or early April 2011. Crews will remove roadway, install a larger storm drainage pipe, restore roadway and install new curb and gutter, sidewalks and landscaping.

Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destinations, exercise caution in the construction zone, pay attention to construction signage and use an alternative route if possible.
NO on-street parking will be allowed on Lead or Coal in the construction zone.
