The Garfield-Harrison Project is a large-scale master planned Stormwater project that began in January 2022. The City of Loveland has contracted with Connell Resources to build the Garfield Harrison Storm Drainage Improvements Project. The four separate phases are expected to take place over the next four years (approximately one phase per year.) The project addresses the multiple drainage problems caused by aging infrastructure in the west part of downtown Loveland. Partnering with other City departments and divisions within Public Works, waterline, sanitary sewer, street resurfacing, and various concrete repairs would allow additional improvements to the area and project.

The four-year project is designed to improve the following:

  • Implementation of the City of Loveland Master Drainage Plan
  • Replacing and upgrading existing stormwater infrastructure to address existing drainage issues and meet current stormwater standards
  • Installing 18- to 60-inch diameter storm sewer pipes
  • Replacing existing waterlines and valves to address aging infrastructure
  • Replacing pavement including asphalt patching, milling, overlays, or full street reconstruction where project components are installed
  • Rehabilitating and replacing concrete, as well as adding necessary ADA improvements
  • Disconnecting stormwater from the Little Barnes Ditch during Phase 4
  • Providing stormwater quality treatment measures within the stormwater system

The project is estimated to be completed by 2025 and once completed, the project will increase the capacity of the stormwater system and reducing localized neighborhood flooding. By partnering with Water Utilities and Transportation Engineering divisions, this will contribute to functioning waterlines that will reduce water leaks, replacing substandard curb and gutter, handicap access ramps, ADA improvements, lowering overly high street crowns, and re-surfacing of impacted streets.

Traffic Impacts

As we move to the next phase of the project, Phase 2C, residents in the area will experience construction noise and closures to install a large diameter stormsewer pipe. A full closure is expected from Sheridan Avenue and 5th Street. The closure will be for approximately two months, completing by the end of summer 2024. We understand construction can cause frustration and we will ensure public access is available as traffic enters and exits the construction zone. We appreciate your patience while this work is being performed and being part of Loveland's commitment to improving infrastructure. For immediate questions or concerns, you may contact us under the "Stay Informed" section below.

    Next phase of the Garfield-Harrison Project begins in April


    LOVELAND, Colo. – March 21, 2024 – The City’s Stormwater Engineering division, in partnership with Connell Resources, will resume construction on the Garfield-Harrison project in April, weather permitting. Phase 2c is expected to be completed in Fall 2024.

    Phase 2c will begin along Sheridan Avenue north of 4th Street. The project will entail:

    • Street milling on March 25. Street milling is a process used in road construction and maintenance to remove the top layer of an existing pavement surface.
    • A large diameter storm sewer pipe will be installed up to 5th Street and then east to Roosevelt Avenue, requiring excavation that will require a full road closure. Adding a waterline on 5th Street between Franklin and Roosevelt Avenues.

    Traffic Impacts

    Through traffic on Sheridan Avenue and 5th Street will be closed from April 1 until the end of summer 2024. During construction, local access will always be maintained. Residents will experience heavy construction noise and disruptions near their homes for approximately two months. 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.

    Project Contact and Weekly Updates

    There are multiple opportunities to follow the project’s progress and receive notices of upcoming work. They are the following:

    Additionally, residents can receive frequent updates about the project by signing up for the project’s newsletter by subscribing to the email list in the “Stay Informed” section.

    About the Project

    The Garfield-Harrison Project is a large-scale master planned stormwater project that began in January 2022. The four-phase project is expected to be completed by 2025. The project addresses the multiple drainage problems caused by aging infrastructure in the west part of downtown Loveland. Partnering with the City’s Water and Wastewater divisions, Street Maintenance and Rehabilitation Program and Stormwater Engineering, the project will include new waterline, sanitary sewer, street resurfacing, and various concrete repairs that will improve ADA accessibility.

    Garfield Harrison Storm Drainage Improvements Construction Ends for 2023

    Road, sidewalk, and landscape improvements completed


    LOVELAND, Colo. – Oct. 10, 2023 – The City of Loveland has ended construction early of the Garfield Harrison Storm Drainage Improvements Project. Road paving, curb and gutter work and landscaping tasks were completed. Construction will restart in spring 2024.

    This multi-year project is designed to implement several improvements to infrastructure in the area including:

    • Replacing and upgrading existing stormwater infrastructure to address existing drainage issues and meet current stormwater standards.

    • Install 18- to 60-inch diameter storm sewer pipes.

    • Replace existing waterlines and valves to address aging infrastructure.

    • Replace pavement including asphalt patching, milling, overlays, or full street reconstruction where project components are installed.

    • Rehabilitate and replace concrete as well as add necessary ADA improvements.

    • Provide stormwater quality treatment measures within the stormwater system.
