This past month at Clear Creek has been an uphill battle to get water flowing down the new creek alignment. Many changes from the original plans have been made to better account for the new creek alignment. Our crew has done a great job communicating with CDOT to ensure they are happy with how the work is being built before moving to the next step. We are now anticipating shifting the creek on April 26th with our substantial completion date staying firm on May 31st.
