With workers wrapping up water tie-in work on South Midland Avenue, the improvement project remains on schedule for completion this summer, a news release states.

Crews recently finished a waterline stretching 6,700 feet from Hager Lane to Four Mile Road, replacing the old 12-inch pipe with an 18-inch line. The expanded waterline capacity could boost the water system’s reliability in the Midland Corridor south of 27th Street, according to the news release.

Moving forward, crews are slated to work on curb and gutter, milling and road base installation. Asphalt work could begin in May.



Glenwood Springs Earth Day celebrations Friday, Saturday and Sunday could cause some traffic delays as residents tow their yard waste to the old rodeo fairgrounds on Airport Road.

Additionally, motorists can expect one-lane road closures on South Midland and delays on 27th Street on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. as well as on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., a news release states.



Occasionally, work hours could be extended, but a news release states the city plans to notify travelers in advance of those extensions.
