South Adams County Water and Sanitation District (“District”) has contracted with Brannan Construction Company (“Brannan”) to construct nearly 1,700 linear feet of 4-inch irrigation water line and 2,700 linear feet of 12-inch irrigation water line with most of the construction taking place in Potomac Street and adjacent side streets between E 104th Avenue to E 108th Avenue. There are other work locations located within the surrounding areas of Turnberry, Potomac Farms, and North Range Village. The three developments listed above are on the District’s dual water system, which is comprised of separate irrigation and potable water systems. To date, the irrigation systems for these developments have been fed by potable water due to limited irrigation infrastructure in place. With the recent completion of a nearby irrigation transmission line in 2022, there is now available irrigation water for these developments. The purpose of this project is to install additional irrigation infrastructure so that the irrigation systems in these developments can be converted off the potable system and be supplied by the irrigation system.
Brannan and its sub-contractors will begin mobilizing crews on or about the week of February 6, 2023, in the area of Potomac Street and Turnberry Parkway to begin pipeline construction. The most significant impact to the public will be on Potomac Street between E 104th Avenue and E 108th Avenue.
Between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., construction could impact lanes and traffic within Potomac Street. Traffic will be managed with roadway signs and flaggers to maintain accessibility and ensure vehicles can move through the project area. Brannan will have sign boards with applicable messaging about upcoming traffic pattern changes.
The overall construction project is expected to be completed by May 31st, but most of the pipeline installation in Potomac Street (and work to side streets off Potomac) will be completed by April 16th. This tentative schedule and plan are dependent on weather.
