Frisco Mayor Gary Wilkinson climbed behind the controls of a backhoe Tuesday, July 29, and tore up a small section of curb to ceremoniously begin construction of the Step Up Main Street project.

The event took place at the intersection of Main Street and Madison Avenue, which serves as the starting point for improvements to Frisco’s thoroughfare. Construction officially begins Monday, Aug. 4, with improvements to the Main and Madison intersection scheduled for completion by Aug. 27.

Once that intersection is complete, construction will move to Seventh Avenue on Sept. 8 for drainage improvements. One to two blocks between Seventh and Madison will be under construction at a time, requiring the closure of Seventh from Main Street to the alley.

From Sept. 15 through Oct. 31, drainage work will occur on Main Street one to two blocks at a time from 7th to Madison Avenues. That section of work will require single lane closures and detours, but no full closures of Main Street are anticipated, according to a town of Frisco news release.

Residents can expect construction to take place between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

In 1981, Main Street was deeded to the town of Frisco by the Colorado Department of Transportation. Improvements, including sidewalks, on-street lighting, on-street parking and street furniture, were made a year later, but the infrastructure is now outdated and at risk of failing, the release stated.

For more information about the project, call the Step Up Main Street construction hotline at 668-0836, ext. 9, or visit http://www.FriscoGov.com.
