The City of Colorado Springs has issued a Request for Proposals for work to begin on a long-planned channel reconstruction project.
The Monument Creek at Talemine project will see the rebuilding of a channel connected to the Monument Creek, which travels north to south through the city.
The work will more specifically take place on a channel segment at a street called Talemine Court, in a light industrial section of Colorado Springs on the north side of the city.
The reconstructed channel will measure just over 500 linear feet, with the removal of an existing storm pipe as part of the project.
The project will also see the removal of existing fencing and building of new replacement fencing, construction of a 4 foot by 10 foot concrete box culvert, and installation of new fill materials and grouted riprap.
The project is expected to have a four-month construction schedule.
The submission deadline for the RFP is set for February 5.
