Design begins on $5-million Shields St. corridor project

(Update 08/02/12: City/county open house will combine the Shields Street widening project with plans for a large storm drainage culvert running through the neighborhood to the Poudre River. The open house will be held from 4 - 6 p.m. Aug. 8 at Lincoln Middle School, 1600 W. Lancer Drive, Room 102. Information: fcgov.com/stormwater, utilites@fcgov.com or (970) 221-6700.)

We received notice last week that design has started on the Shields Street Corridor Project, a plan to widen Shields adjacent to our stable, and replace the bridge spanning the Poudre River.

Interwest Consulting Group and King Surveyors have been chosen to head up this phase of the $5-million project, according to the notice. Larimer County plans a spring open house to showcase design concepts, and construction is slated for 2014.
