AVON, Colorado - Metcalf Road in Avon closed in both directions for drainage improvements starting Thursday, with a tentative re-opening Oct. 26. The town of Avon is in the process of installing six drainage culverts across Metcalf Road, the lowest one near the Metcalf Commercial Park /Holy Cross Substation and the upper one just below The Baranacas.
The actual road closure will take place just south of 281 Metcalf Road (Metcalf Commercial Park). Those accessing addresses north of 281 Metcalf Road (residences in Wildridge and Wildwood) from Avon will need to use the detour. Those accessing addresses below 281 Metcalf from Wildridge will need to use the detour. Businesses and residents along Nottingham road will not be affected.
The detour around the road construction will take residents and tenants around the Mountain Star community for approximately one week. Traffic control will be provided at all times to direct residents and tenants where to go. Please allow an additional 10 to 15 minutes for your daily commute during this road closure.
Construction on the project is expected to last through mid-November.
