7th Avenue Improvements



Construction crews substantially completed the 7th Avenue Improvements project in November and then the City’s contractor had to leave for winter. Because work finished in late November, winter snowstorms and cold temperatures stopped the contractor from fully restoring landscaping and irrigation before they left. 

City officials want to assure property owners along 7th Avenue that the contractor will return and finish the work when temperatures are appropriate for landscape restoration, irrigation repair, and irrigation testing. That work is scheduled for mid-March through early April. Property owners will not bear any responsibility to repair sprinkler irrigation or landscaping adjacent to their property that was disturbed or broken as a result of the City’s improvement project.

Project Background

For about eight months in the summer and fall of 2019, rolling closures will move along 7th Avenue from 13th Street to 16th Street as the City replaces and upsizes the city’s stormwater, water distribution, and sanitary sewer systems.

The work also relocates several non-city utilities such as gas, electric and communication lines and replaces the asphalt road surface and concrete curb and gutter. This work takes place in conjunction with sanitary sewer replacements near 7th Avenue and 14th, 15th and 17th streets.
