Water Line Work to Close Burlington, Balsam

The replacement of a water main line will cause traffic delays and other disruptions on Balsam Street between East Burlington and Gateway avenues the week of June 14.

The project is scheduled to begin Monday, June 14, with milling of the roadway surface in preparation for excavation. This will involve intermittent traffic delays and closures from East Burlington to Gateway. On June 15 the excavation phase of the project will begin in the intersection of East Burlington and Balsam, which will require the complete shutdown of through traffic on both streets. Burlington is expected to be closed for several hours but will be opened up upon completion. 


Then the rest of the project will continue on Balsam toward Gateway and is expected to last most of the week. Water service shutdowns will occur in different areas during the project but affected customers will be notified separately. 


 If you have any questions please contact the Water Distribution Department 970-542-3911 or email us at  This project is being done ahead of planned paving under the Strictly for Streets program.
