Garfield Harrison Storm Drainage Improvements Projects

Phase 1 of the Garfield Harrison Storm Drainage Improvements Project was completed December 1, 2022. This is the first phase of a four-phase project, which started in January 2022. The City of Loveland, in partnership with Connell Resources, began the Garfield Harrison Storm Drainage Improvements Project and the four separate phases are expected to take place over the next four years (approximately one phase per year.) This webpage includes important project updates to keep you informed.

While Phase 1 is complete, detours are still in place for a separate bridge project for the City. For information on the 1st Street Bridge Replacement project, please visit lovgov.org/1stStreetBridge.

Phase 2 of the Garfield Harrison Storm Drainage Improvements Project is scheduled to begin in February 2023.

Stay informed and contact us with questions.

Project Schedule

Phase 2 will occur in 2023, starting in February. Typical working hours will be Monday through Friday from approximately 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Night and weekend work will be occasional and announced in advance.


Traffic Impacts

Sheridan Avenue will be impacted from January through 2023. There will be sidewalk and road closures for a portion of Sheridan Avenue from W. 1st Street to W. 5th Street. To avoid the closure, detours will be in place through the duration of Phase 2. Travelers should be prepared for delays.

All work activities are subject to weather conditions. Stay safe and be sure to go slow in the cone zone.

Access to River’s Edge Natural Area, Jayhawker Ponds, Centennial Park and the Recreation Trail are all open. Parking lots are open and access is available on W. 1st Street from the west (Taft Avenue).

Overall Project Improvements

  • Replace and upgrade existing stormwater infrastructure to address existing drainage problems and meet current stormwater criteria. Install 18- to 60-inch diameter storm sewer.
  • Replace existing waterlines and valves to address aging infrastructure with a history of leaks.
  • Replace pavement including asphalt patching, milling, overlays, or full street reconstruction where project components are installed.
  • Rehabilitate and replace concrete as well as ADA improvements.
  • Provide stormwater quality treatment measures within the stormwater system.

What are expected project impacts?

Impacts will be kept as minimal as possible. There may be sidewalk and lane closures as well as detours with flaggers in place. Travelers should be prepared for delays.

What other facts do I need to know?

  • Estimated project cost: $12.3 million
  • Estimated project timeline: Four phases over four years
  • Phase 1 estimated timeline: January 2022 - 2023
