This is a joint project between the city and Urban Drainage and Flood Control District. Construction work is set to begin the week of November 13 on a portion of Jackass Gulch, a stream that runs on the north side of Mineral Avenue, from the railroad upstream to the Highline Canal. The specific area of construction is located east of Jackass Hill Road.
The project purpose is to stabilize this eroding section that is threatening adjacent homes (along W. Jamison Way) and is also creating excess sediment loads to areas downstream. This is a steep portion of channel with tall, steep, and overhanging banks. The work includes drop structures made of grouted boulders, buried riprap, and revegetation. Trees that must be removed to accommodate the work will be replaced. The trail traffic along Mineral may see temporary disruptions, but no closures are planned at this time.
2017 Curb, Gutter and Sidewalk Repair
As part of an annual program, city staff evaluates the condition of existing concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk and develops a list of areas at various locations throughout the city with the highest need of repair or replacement. Work is expected to take place from mid-June through mid-August. Drivers and/or pedestrians may encounter temporary lane or sidewalk restrictions during construction. Parking in the immediate vicinity may be restricted during construction.
