In early July, 20202, the Town will be finalizing construction 26 on-street parking spaces along West Benchmark Road, sidewalk realignment by Mikaela Way, construction of an underground water quality vault, and drainage improvements to prevent the flooding of the Avon Public Library’s lower floor area. The stormwater quality vault will collect runoff from Mikaela Way, the Recreation Center parking lot and the Avon Town Hall parking lot to remove pollutants before discharging into the Eagle River. The project budget, as approved by the Avon Town Council, is $581,000. There will be impacts to the neighborhood including the temporary closure of Benchmark Road at Mikaela Way, including the intersection.
Old Town Hall Utility Work
Through September, utility work to disconnect the old Town Hall from water, gas, and electric will take place. Old Town Hall will not be demolished in 2020. A major component of the project includes the installation of a new water main from Lake Street along the recreation path south of the field to better serve Town facilities in the Park as well as a future public restroom on the site.
The pedestrian experience along Avon Road underneath I-70 is important because it connects the Nottingham Road trail, Swift Gulch Road trail and the Nottingham Road neighborhood with the Town Core. It has poor connectivity; and winter icing issues. The project will widen the path on the west side separating it from traffic and improve the drainage. The final cost will be $990,000.
