The Salida Public Works Department has multiple capital projects underway; thrilling for some, and for others considered a necessary and temporary inconvenience. They include numerous work locations for reconstruction, utility related improvements, and improvements to sidewalk, curb and gutter, and crosswalks.

B Street reconstruction and improvements adjacent to Poncha Boulevard and Third Street have generally been completed with some landscaping work remaining. I Street reconstruction between Sackett Avenue and First Street is anticipated to be paved and completed within the next week. Other sidewalk, curb, and gutter replacement along First and Street and Park Ave. are expected to continue but will be weather dependent.

 The Low Zone Waterline replacement project is initiating this week along US-50 from County Road 111 (Sonic / Walmart) and extends approximately one fourth a mile to the east on the south side of the highway.

One lane of US-50 eastbound traffic will be closed; however, access is to remain open to adjacent properties. In upcoming weeks this project will continue south along County Road 111 up to Buck Run Road.

 The stormwater capital project designed to improve runoff water quality from city streets before discharging into the Arkansas River is expected to start the week of October 11.

This work will be located in the northwest corner of Riverside Park along F Street and may impact the park access at this location. This work is expected to take several weeks to complete.

Public Works looks forward to improving the City streetscapes, utility resiliency, and water quality enhancements with the completion of these projects.
