To our 9th and Colorado redevelopment neighbors:
As with any development and construction project, there will be instances where the surrounding neighborhood could be impacted (i.e. traffic alterations, noise, etc.). The 9th and Colorado team will strive to keep everyone informed of upcoming activities that may impact you.
We will make efforts to identify major upcoming activities, but please recognize that the 9th & Colorado redevelopment is a large and complex effort and there will be times where construction activities and logistics change.

• General Notes: There will be ongoing construction deliveries and movement of construction equipment in and around the site that may temporarily block a street lane for a short period of time but on site construction personal will direct traffic to avoid conflict. The entirety of the street parking lane between Hale Parkway and 11th Avenue on the east side of Ash Street is closed and is expected to remain closed until spring 2017. The sidewalk along Hale Parkway and the sidewalk along 11th Avenue stretching from property corner to property corner are currently closed and are expected to remain closed until spring of 2017.
o The exterior envelope of the building is ongoing and will continue through May. As noted above, this work will require deliveries that will take place during business hours and may temporarily block a street lane on Ash or 11th Avenue for a short period of time.
o Interior finishes including drywall, flooring, cabinetry, etc. work will also be ongoing throughout the spring inside the building. Various supply deliveries for these trades will continue to occur which may temporarily block a street lane on Ash or 11th Avenue for a short period of time.
