Prospect Road West of College Avenue in Fort Collins Re-Opening Ahead of Schedule
Finally, it won’t take me forever to get home every day! Prospect Road has been fully closed west of College Avenue in Fort Collins since March 4th. Here’s the good news: Prospect will reopen to through traffic by tomorrow morning (Saturday, April 6th). The City of Fort Collins says, “Thanks to extensive planning, diligent work by the crews and cooperative weather, the closure will end ahead of schedule.”
City of Fort Collins crews, updated nearly every aspect of the City’s infrastructure during construction of the MAX bus rapid transit system. With the amount of utility work that had to occur in this constrained space, it was not possible to safely close portions of the street and allow traffic to pass by construction. New water lines, sewer pipes and electric conduits were relocated, and a new concrete roadway, curb & gutter, and sidewalks were installed as part of the new pedestrian-friendly MAX transit system.
