Work began in late August on a 240-unit apartment complex in Avon and will include one, two and three bed room units. The project is the next phase of the Village at Avon Development which is an 1,800 acre mixed use project. The Avon Apartments project is located on East Beaver Creek Boulevard near Traer Creek Plaza. Total construction time is anticipated to be 20-22 months. Portions of East Beaver Creek Boulevard were relocated for this project.
West Benchmark Road
The Town is working on reconstructing West Benchmark Road and the project includes the addition of 26 on-street parking spaces along West Benchmark Road, sidewalk realignment by Mikaela Way, construction of an underground water quality vault, and drainage improvements to prevent the flooding of the Avon Public Library’s lower floor area. The stormwater quality vault will collect runoff from Mikaela Way, the Recreation Center parking lot and the Avon Town Hall parking lot to remove pollutants before discharging into the Eagle River. The project budget, as approved by the Avon Town Council, is $581,000. The project is scheduled to be constructed in late 2019 and early 2020. There will be impacts to the neighborhood including the temporary closure of Benchmark Road at Mikaela Way, including the intersection.
Old Town Hall Utility Work
The old Town Hall will not be demolished in 2020. Utilities will be relocated to facilitate future demolition of the Old Town Hall building. A major component of the project includes the installation of a new water main from Lake Street along the recreation path south of the field to better serve Town facilities in the Park as well as a future public restroom on the site.
