During construction, employee and guest parking has generously been made available at the Rocky Mountain Bible Church lot at 6th Avenue and Granite Street and is available Monday-Saturday. And parking will also be available on the east side of the Workforce Center parking area at 6th Avenue and Galena Street and it will be available seven days a week for employee and guest parking. Both lots will be signed. The third parking that can be utilized by employees is the parking lot on the corner of Main and Summit Blvd behind Uncle John’s Farm Stand.
Construction Sign Program Map and Guidelines
The project will improve infrastructure and create a more welcoming and usable Main Street. Components of the project include adding additional street benches, updating street lighting, expanding the north side sidewalk two feet (to make it as wide as the current sidewalk on the south side of the street), and updating the paver design / increasing the amenity strip on each side of the sidewalk. The project will also improve drainage, as well as improve safety and functionality. Parking along Main Street will remain in its current configuration, and will result in no net loss of parking for Main Street patrons. Summer seasonal placement of flower planter boxes and hanging flower baskets are planned to continue as in past years. For more information on the “Step Up Main Street” project, please contact Town of Frisco Public Works Department at (970) 668-0836.
Will the completion of the drainage pipe installation solve drainage issues this winter (2014/2015)?
We have received a lot of positive feedback about this project solving drainage issues on Main Street, and while laying drainage pipe this fall from 7th Avenue to Madison Avenue will help quicken the pace of future phases, it will unfortunately not solve drainage issues until the whole project is complete in 2016. The pipe installation was intended to make future phases faster and more efficient. There is additional infrastructure required on each block to improve drainage on Main Street from 7th Avenue to Madison Avenue. That infrastructure will be installed during each of the final 3 phases of the project.
The freeze and thaw cycle of our high alpine environment makes it impossible to eliminate all drainage issues, but rest assured that upon completion the Step Up Main Street Project will not only present a more aesthetically pleasing Main Street, but also a better functioning one with improved drainage.
