West Benchmark Road Closure Begins
Monday, April 17th
West Benchmark Road will be closed to thru traffic between Avon Station and Mikaela Way beginning Monday, April 27th to facilitate construction of the West Benchmark Road On-Street Parking & Water Quality Improvements Project. The road closure will remain in effect until May 29th to expedite the project and reduce cost.
The project generally consists of the addition of twenty-six diagonal parking spaces, installation of a stormwater treatment structure, drainage improvements, landscaping, and asphalt overlay.
Detours around the closure will be in place and access to The Seasons and 351 Benchmark Road (the old Avon fire station) will be maintained. Work will be performed Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Motorists may encounter minor delays and are asked to remain patient and to please allow additional travel time.
The project is being constructed by United Companies on behalf of the Town. Please contact Town Engineer Justin Hildreth at email@example.com or (970) 331-3741 with questions regarding this work.
