Underground Utility Work to Start on Highway 2 This Week

As a part of Commerce City’s Highway 2 Widening project, Xcel Energy, through their contractor Sturgeon Electric, will be working to install underground electric lines and remove the overhead lines starting April 18. Over the next two months, work will take place in two areas: Between 88th Avenue and 96th Avenue and from 72nd Avenue to Quebec Street.

A few poles will need to remain in place to serve adjacent properties or feed lines across Highway 2.

Xcel has not scheduled any planned power outages for residents or business owners. In the event that they need to shut off the power, Xcel will be reaching out directly to businesses and residents. Temporary shoulder closures are anticipated along Highway 2, with some minimal closures to private drives. Xcel or the contractor, Sturgeon, will coordinate this with any business owners or residents prior to the closure.

Commerce City is widening Highway 2 from 72nd Avenue to 112th Avenue as part of its five-year capital improvement program. This project will expand the two-lane road to a four-lane road with a multi-use side path separated from traffic for pedestrians and bicyclists.

The project is intended to produce the following improvements:
• Increased vehicle capacity and improved level of service
• Improved safety
• Reduced flooding and improved water quality
• Environmental and contextual sensitivity
• Multimodal, i.e., accommodate pedestrians, bicyclists

The undergrounding electrical work is being paid for by the city. Funding for the widening project has been made available through the Colorado Department of Transportation’s RAMP & FASTER safety program and is being supplemented with city funds. This project is currently in the design phase and is expected to move to the construction phase in mid-2016.
