JOHNSTOWN COMMUNITY YMCA CONSTRUCTION PUSHES FORWARD
The 69,000-square-foot Johnstown Community YMCA is still on track for completion in May 2020, and on budget, according to Project Manager Beau LaCouture. Crews have faced constant weather-related challenges but have still managed to complete most of the site grading; foundations; rammed aggregate piers; underground utilities; storm sewer; concrete floors; underground electrical; plumbing; and 90 percent of the structural masonry walls.
Over the next few months, the contractor will install structural steel; electrical and mechanical systems; underground plumbing at both pools; pool deck; exterior masonry façade; landscaping at multipurpose field; and flatwork at the parking lot.
In the meantime, the YMCA of Northern Colorado’s summer camp offerings are in full swing! The YMCA Camp NoCo (traditional day camp for grades K-6th), Achievers Camp (summer enrichment for grades K-5th) and Teen Camp (fun and field trips for grades 6th-9th) are fun-focused day camps that run all summer long at Pioneer Ridge Elementary. Registration is ongoing at www.ymcanoco.org/summer-camps/day-camps/johnstown-milliken-camps. In fall, the Y will begin offering youth sports programs in the Johnstown/Milliken area. Stay tuned for details. Financial assistance is offered for families, individuals and children in need. Learn more at www.ymcanoco.org/membership/financial-assistance.
Keep an eye out for information coming your way on the Topping Out ceremony, which is being planned for August.
Street Overlay Project: The project covers two locations in Town for a 2-inch rotomill and overlay on Jay Ave. from Greeley to 6th St. and 4th St. from Telep to Greeley. Staff also plans a full reconstruction of Hawthorne Ct. from Woodbine to the south end of the cul-de-sac. The reconstruction will remove the entire roadway to include 12 inches of road base and 6 inches of asphalt. The project began in June and should finish by August 1.
***UPDATE 6/29/19: According to the Marco Carani, Public Works Director, there will unfortunately be a delay in the street overlay project. When the contractor was milling the roadway, they found the road will need additional sub-grade work in order to build the road to the proper specifications for it to last.
Crews will be back to patch and fill the areas that need to be reconstructed within the next couple weeks with final paving to follow. We are hopeful to have completion by middle of July. The Town apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have questions or concerns, Marco can be reached at 970-587-4664. Ext 234.
Slurry Seal Project: The Town’s slurry seal project will begin in July and finish in September, covering existing streets with a top coat that extends the life of the road. The slurry seal top coat will be placed to the following streets in Town: Rolling Hills Pkwy; Centennial Dr.; Castle Pines; N 3rd St.; White Wing Road from Saxony Rd. to Muscovey Ln.; Muscovey Ln., White Wing Rd. To White Wing Rd.; and Bittren Dr., White Wing Rd. to White Wing Rd.
Pavemarking Painting: Town streets will get new paint starting in mid-summer! Find a full list of streets that will be impacted on the Town’s website at http://townofjohnstown.com/292/Projects.
