Mason Street closed at Glenn Morris Field House Until June 13

May 30, 2012

Hey CAM, How long will Mason Street be closed for construction? The sign said it would be closed until May 25 but it is still blocked off today. What is going on?

Question: "Hey CAM, How long will Mason Street be closed for construction? The sign said it would be closed until May 25 but it is still blocked off today. What is going on ?"

CAM’s response: Whenever there is a street closure due to construction, CAM will be there to get you answers.

I checked this one out and, indeed, Mason Street near the Glenn Morris Field House was supposed to reopen May 25. Crews are working on utilities that run under the street. It will remain closed until June 13.

However, when dealing with buried utilities, you do not always know the condition of what is buried until you dig it up. And that was the case here. Turns out there are more types of utilities needing repair than first anticipated, and to a greater extent than first thought.

Take this inconvenience as practice: When construction begins on the Mason Street Corridor, there will be a lot of construction detours. But cruising that MAXX bus will be oh so nice once it is done.

In Colorado, its either snow or road construction; get used to it.
