The Town was recently awarded a Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) for restoration of the St. Vrain Creek, and solicited bids for a design & construction team. After a careful and deliberate review process of the seven qualified proposals, Naranjo Civil Constructors was selected to contract with the Town for the stream restoration project.
According to the Lyons Recovery Action Plan, the St. Vrain Creek restoration entails river way improvements including rock formations and re-vegetation, to reintroduce wetlands, slow the flow of the river, and create natural areas for fish and plants to thrive and support recreational use of the river. The project will also reestablish pedestrian paths and access points for river users. As part of the grant conditions, the project must be complete by the end of March 2016.
The preliminary negotiations are underway, and public meetings will be announced when determined.
