Here’s an update on Florence’s planned water infrastructure improvements, from Charlotte Burrous writing for the Cañon City Daily Record. From the article:
This Monday, K.R. Swerdfeger Construction, of Pueblo, will begin to replace the old water pipes with 16-inch ductile iron pipes on the Main Street water line improvements for Florence. The new line will be installed along several blocks on Main Street, said Florence City Manager Tom Piltingsrud. “We’re starting at Pikes Peak and working west,” he said. “That’s estimated to be a three-week leg.”
The next segment will be from Santa Fe to the railroad tracks, which will take five weeks. During the project, Swerdfeger Construction will install the water line on the south side of Main Street and then tear out the existing pipe on the north side…
The project, which is estimated to cost $551,161, should be finished within eight weeks, depending on weather, Piltingsrud said.
