Public Works Update: August 2019

Project updates and activities from the city's Public Works Department:

Berthoud Pass Ditch Opening
The city’s Water Resources Division, assisted by staff from Public Works Operations, Parks and Recreation and the Church Ditch Water Authority, opened the Berthoud Pass Ditch on July 3. The system provides Northglenn with water from the Colorado River Basin. The crew had to climb up to 11,000 feet, which required snowshoeing, shoveling snow and a three-mile round trip hike.

Grant Street Medians
Construction modifications to the median on Grant Street, between 120th Avenue and Community Center Drive, will start in early August.  Work should be complete by mid-September.

Wastewater Treatment Plant

  • Staff reconfigured piping at the Wastewater Treatment Plant to help reduce odors. The city purchased a SolarBee, which generates oxygen and further reduces odor. It will be installed this fall.
  • The city upgraded the Ultraviolet Disinfection System at the Wastewater Treatment Plant. The existing UV channel was upgraded and a second, redundant channel was installed. Cost: $835,000

112th Avenue Project
Contractor T&M will install signal poles and complete paving and the widening of York Street in August. 

Street Work
  • The city completed all white and yellow striping in June and July.
  • Striping on Grant Street from 104th Avenue to Muriel Drive will be re-done by the contractor. The street was originally striped last year, but it is coming up in various places. Since the work is still under warranty, the city has no additional costs. 

In the Community
Staff repaired or cleaned the following items from mid-June to mid-July:

  • 20 Street signs
  • 350 Potholes
  • 12 Graffiti incidents
