Water system maintenance in Avon starts Oct. 27

Minor impacts to bus stop, sidewalk access, and traffic on Hwy. 6 and W. Beaver Creek Blvd. 

Project area on Hwy. 6 and W. Beaver Creek Blvd. in Avon

Work to repair a water valve at the intersection of U.S. Highway 6 and W. Beaver Creek Blvd. in Avon begins Oct. 27 and is scheduled through Nov. 5. The bus stop will be temporarily relocated just west of the regular stop and foot traffic detours will be in place when excavation activities begin.

Crane work will begin Nov. 1, which will reduce southbound traffic on W. Beaver Creek Blvd. to one lane until the repair is complete.

Work hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Travelers should use caution in the area and be aware of personnel and machinery operating adjacent to the road. Pedestrians, bicyclists, and other non-vehicular users must comply with the sidewalk closure and detour.

This work will increase system reliability and improve the level of service to customers in the area.
