Other work includes intersection upgrades at Franklin and relocating utilities and water facilities. The work will be phased, but phasing will overlap.

Phase I – August 2022 to October 2023

Crews will begin utility and other work at the east end of the project from Franklin to York. Work includes water, sanitary and storm sewer pipe installation, wall construction, tree and fence removal, and water facility relocations in conjunction with North Washington Street Water and Sanitation District and Metro Water Recovery. Xcel Energy will also be working on power and gas line relocations. All business access will be maintained.

Other work later in Phase I includes: 

  • Crews will install a new storm sewer and finish water line work from Franklin to York.
