Construction update on Colfax Avenue
The City of Aurora is planning a major construction project near Anschutz Medical Campus. While Aurora has not yet finalized a groundbreaking start date, when it begins, a five-phase, three-year construction project will be initiated. The first phase of this construction project will occur on Colfax Avenue between Peoria and Ursula Street.
This construction project is meant to address substantial flood risk in and around Campus by installing an updated stormwater conveyance system. Please allow extra time to get to your child's appointment, and visit Aurora Water's website for project updates.
