The construction of the utility trench along S. Platte River Drive is complete. Construction crews will now begin working around the clock, 24 hours a day, Monday through Saturday, to relocate the Denver Water line and the electrical utility line in the new trench.
Soil sampling using drill equipment will continue in Sanderson Gulch between S. Platte River Drive and the BNSF railroad.
People in the area will notice heavy construction machinery, construction trailers, and more crews moving into the vicinity of S. Lipan Street and W. Arkansas Avenue. With the utility line relocation coming to a close toward the end of April, construction crews are preparing for excavation work on Sanderson Gulch itself.
S. Lipan Street is open to traffic in both directions. S. Platte River Drive remains closed northbound at W. Florida Avenue.
