The project includes the removal and replacement of the old, undersized water main and services in the areas highlighted below. Additional work includes reconstructing the low-water crossing along Mayo Street and installing new asphalt pavement throughout the project.

Once complete, these improvements will increase water system reliability by upgrading the existing infrastructure for the Mile High Park Neighborhood. The project is scheduled to be complete in winter 2020.
