Staff Report

Sage Street north at 15th Street will be closed starting Wednesday for the installation of a valley gutter. Motorists should use Sage Street south.

Rim Road at Canyon remains closed until the concrete valley gutter installation is complete; this intersection should be open by Friday. Residents should use 6th Street to Quartz as the detour route.

Concrete work continues on the west side of Arroyo Lane and the north side of Verde Ridge with the primary focus on Verde Ridge in order to reopen residential parking as soon as possible. A shallow gas line was discovered on Verde Ridge and must be lowered, which will delay concrete work in a small section of Verde Ridge.  No scheduled gas outage is required to complete this work.

Trenching for utility work continues on the north end of 15th Street; expect continued lane closures with flagging operations and detours as work progresses through side street intersections.

Oakwood Loop south at 15th will be closed Tuesday to allow for the installation of an electric and communications duct bank; please use Oakwood north.

Canyon Road between 15th and 9th remains closed to through traffic. Residential access in the immediate area will be provided; all other motorists should seek alternate routes. Residents can expect daytime flagging operations with minor delays as the contractor continues preparation for concrete work, followed by paving operations. Two-way traffic will be restored in this area in the evenings and weekends when work is not occurring.

RMCI continues to use a 15-passenger van to transport pedestrians through the Canyon Road construction site. The van circulates every 5 to 7 minutes while RMCI is working, typically 7 a.m. to 5-7 p.m. depending on the job activity, Monday through Saturday. This service for pedestrians will continue until sidewalks are open on at least one side of Canyon. Each evening, RMCI will re-establish the pedestrian paths for use.

The van route starts at 9th Street and Canyon Road continuing north on Canyon, making the Nugget, Opal and Piñon Loops. Pedestrians on Nugget, Opal, and Piñon Loops will be picked up in front of their residence. Additional stops include the Pine Street cul-de-sac and Quartz at 6th Street. The route will end at Canyon and 15th Street. The driver will then turn around and repeat the route in the opposite direction. Pedestrians are asked to use the van service provided.

Please Note: Due to the significant amount of work and equipment in the roadway, motorists are asked to avoid the construction area and seek alternate routes whenever possible. Please use caution when travel through the work zone is required and pay attention to traffic control devices and flaggers within the work areas.
