DTR Sidewalk Project Has Begun

Work has started on the Minden Downtown Revitalization sidewalk project. The southbound driving lane and parking area of Colorado Avenue from 4th Street to 5th Street will remain closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic for the majority of the project.
Access to all businesses is still available in this stage of the project. At least five feet of existing sidewalk next to the business face will remain as work focuses on removing, replacing, and extending the sidewalk east, curb and gutter, and installing pedestrian level lighting on the outer edge of the sidewalk. Customers will need to access the sidewalk from 4th Street or 5th Street.
As the project progresses, concrete in front of each business will be removed and replaced with ADA compliant concrete ramps and steps with railings. During this time, main access to businesses will be closed one business at a time starting at the Senior Center and moving north. Customer access to the west side of the square will fluctuate from 4th Street or 5th Street.
