Shields Street Underpass & At-Grade Improvements

The proposed project is envisioned as an opportunity to create unified connection between Campus West and Main campus. The proposed project will require extensive design and construction coordination with the City of Fort Collins and neighboring stakeholders. Design will incorporate regulatory standards for development of City roadways, intersections, utility relocations, and work in ROW areas owned and operated by the City of Fort Collins. Design efforts will also consider those privately owned properties adjacent to the project extents to unify their needs for continued operational success with this proposed new development to the site. This will include neighborhood outreach for commentary during design and prior to construction as well as on-going communications throughout the construction duration. The project will necessitate the relocation of University and/or City utility infrastructure, requiring easements between the entities. In addition the project will required grant of public right-of-way to allow for City ownership and operation of the improvements.
