2A Street Improvement Project 2018 Status      
City Council has chosen this year to return to the traditional Design/Bid/Build process (Resolution 5-2018) as well as complete the work in smaller projects, making it more competitive for local contractors.

This change in process has caused a small delay and change in scope for 2018.

This year the following streets will get reconstructed:

  • Field Ave – Central Ave to High Street
  • Park Ave – 9th Street to 12th Street

Construction should take place late summer to early fall.

Construction Update 5/2/2018
Kiewit construction crews will be completing punch list items from the 2017 2A Street Improvement Project beginning this spring. Canon City residents should expect to see intermittent temporary lane restrictions as punch list items are completed. Remaining work includes infrared heat treat at water valves, finishing manholes and joints, touch-up shoulder work, and landscaping. Completing required punch list items will begin mid-May and wrap up in late summer.


2017 Construction
On April 17, 2017, the City Council awarded Kiewit Infrastructure the Design/Build Street Improvement Project (Referendum #2A).
