From the Mayor of Jamestown:
This is to inform everyone that Duran and the Town need to close Main St through Town next week in order to repair service lines.
Main Street Closed (15th to Ward St)
Monday 7/28 – Friday 8/1
8:30am – 4:30pm
Expect delays outside of these hours
As we repair the drinking water distribution system in Town, we are required to meet current codes and standards which require the water main and curb valves to be 7 feet deep. The old mains and valves were 5 feet deep at the most. In order to restore function of the water system we are required to lower the ends of the private service lines to meet the new depth of the water main. 9 of the 22 water service lines on Main St are on the opposite side of the street from the water main. For these 9 service lines Duran will need to dig a trench across the entire road which requires the road to be completely closed.
Duran is working closely with Boulder County Sheriff, Boulder County Transportation, Boulder County Transportation Communication, Left Hand Fire Protection District and Jamestown Volunteer Fire Department to ensure all agencies are aware of the closure. Electronic signs will be placed at the bottom of Left Hand Canyon, Lee Hill Rd, James Canyon and the top of the switchbacks on Overland Rd. Duran will continue to have traffic control in Town. This will NOT impact emergency services for anywhere in the Canyon or above.
Duran is working as hard as they can and will try to complete this work early. Please be advised that if any issues are encountered it could extend the required closure. Duran has run into unanticipated issues throughout this project such as radon, hydrocarbons and water that were not expected and required special mitigation procedures. We appreciate how difficult this has been for everyone and we appreciate everyone’s patience during the Town’s recovery process.
Please call the Town Hall (303) 449-1806 or me if you have any questions.
