In an ongoing effort to upgrade infrastructure that is in some places nearly 100 years old or more, the City of Fort Collins is upgrading those systems incrementally in various neighborhoods.
That effort has been underway for more than two decades at a cost of $100 million.
Now the city has issued a Request for Proposals to replace its water and wastewater infrastructure in an older suburban neighborhood roughly 6 miles to the west of downtown Fort Collins.
The work on both Maple and Pearl streets will entail the removal of existing 6 and 8-inch sewer pipes, along with the installation of 8-inch PVC replacement pipes.
The project will also include the replacement of five existing manholes, as well as water meters, fire hydrants, and valves.
Construction will see the building of curb inlets, gutters, open channels, and some new pavement.
Submission date for the Request for Proposals is May 29.
