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.
