Have coffee with the WAAP contractor May 16 at Buffalo Lodge

A crew with Wildcat Construction, the contractor for the Westside Avenue Action Plan, works in late April on a footer for what will be a south-side retaining wall for Fountain Creek flowing under the future Adams Crossing Bridge. The creek there is currently diverted along a temporary channel using the black plastic sheeting at upper left.

       People interested in the Westside Avenue Action Plan (WAAP) can go right to the source Wednesday, May 16.
       The latest in a series of informal gatherings titled “Coffee with the Contractor” is scheduled that morning at 10 a.m. at the Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort, 2 El Paso Blvd.
       The public is welcome, and coffee will be provided.
       Funded primarily by the sales-tax-supported Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority, WAAP is a multi-government, $35.5 million project that is rebuilding Colorado/ManitouAvenue for about a mile and a half west of 31st Street.
       The meetings typically consist of summaries by the contractor (Wildcat Construction) and managing government entity (El Paso County) about work progress, schedules and traffic impacts. Questions from the public are welcome.
       ”Coffee” meetings are held every few months, with the most recent one in February. This is the first one held at a location other than Manitou Springs.
       Started in December 2016, the overall project is slated for completion in December of this year.
       For periodic e-mailed project updates, contact MSprings@PublicInfoTeam.com. The project website is westsideavenueplan.com. The phone “hotline” is 301-3801.
