A water main break occurred along 112th St SW at the intersection of Farwest Drive on the evening of Friday, July 22. This break lifted the existing asphalt roadway a few inches on 112th between Military and Farwest. This caused long term damage which requires the immediate replacement of the entire asphalt roadway. Lakewood Water District has hired a contractor and that work will begin on Monday, August 22. This will require the closure of 112th from Military to Farwest. Please see the map below for information on how to get around the closure.
Phase 2 (Washington Blvd) Project Update
All of the storm drainage along Washington Blvd between Edgewood and Vernon will be completed by the end of the month. This includes the largest infiltration system installed by the City, a water quality treatment unit for stormwater prior to discharge to Carp Lake, and a new conveyance system to replace the existing conveyance system that has been structurally deficient for at least 10 years. A graphic below shows the system that the contractor has been installing for the past few weeks.
Following installation of the storm drainage system, the contractor will need to install the water main, street lighting conduit, and irrigation in this section prior to grading for the curbs. After they pour the curbs, they can pour the roundabout at Washington and Edgewood and sidewalks. Once that is all complete, the contractor can pave the roadway section between North Gate/Nottingham and Washington/Vernon.
Phase 1 Update
While construction of Phase 1 is substantially complete, the contractor has a few more punch list items to complete. Crews will be out in the coming weeks to complete that work. Street lighting for the northern circuit (intersection of Gravelly/Washington and Washington Blvd) is expected to be completed on September 7.
