E. 58th Avenue Washington to York

Project Overview

In August 2022, Adams County began the East 58th Avenue from Washington to York Improvement project. The project entails widening and making infrastructure, accessibility, and drainage improvements along East 58th Avenue from Washington to York. Other work includes intersection upgrades at Franklin and relocating utilities and water facilities. The work will be phased, but phasing will overlap.

Project Update

During the week of Feb. 18 to Feb. 24, crews finished installing insertion valves for the Xcel water line at Franklin, and backfilling and damp-proofing walls near the railroad tracks. Ongoing work activities included installing storm sewer system pipe and the new North Washington sanitary sewer line, and forming, tying rebar and pouring walls and headwalls from High to the railroad tracks. Utility crews were onsite to relocate utilities and remove old overhead electric poles.

Next week, crews will continue structural excavation for new wall sections and forming, tying rebar and pouring walls and headwalls from High to the railroad tracks. Other planned work includes installing inlets, and placing pipe for the storm sewer system and the new North Washington sanitary sewer line at the east end of the project corridor. Utility crews will also be onsite to relocate utilities and remove old overhead electric poles. These removals may result in short-term electric outages, which can be reported directly to Xcel via this link, or by phone at 800.895.4999.
