Sewer Line Work To Begin Monday


Montrose, CO — Starting Monday, March 11, contractors working for the City of Montrose will begin replacing sanitary sewer lines and manholes at the corner of Rio Grande Avenue and East Oak Grove Road in support of the Lift Station Elimination project. 

During this initial phase of the project, traffic will be diverted around the construction area through the use of lane shifts or temporary bypass roads. In addition to lane shifts, intermittent closures of the Uncompahgre Riverway Trail and the trailhead parking lot at this intersection may be necessary in order to safely accommodate the active work area. 

These closures and lane shifts are expected to last up to two weeks. The city asks motorists and pedestrians to please exercise caution throughout the work area and to respect all coned-off areas.


For additional details on this project, as well as others taking place throughout the city, please visit the city’s Moving Montrose Forward website at

Any questions regarding the project may be directed to City Engineer Scott Murphy at 970.901.1792.
