Fountain, Colorado – Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at 08:30am, City of Fountain Mayor Gabriel Ortega and various other City Officials will participate in a groundbreaking ceremony to officially launch the first phase of the Duckwood Road Crossing Project, part of the City’s Moving Fountain Forward Initiative and an integral part of Fountain’s efforts to institute a quiet zone, reducing train noise within the City. This 1.6 million dollar project will involve the construction of a new access location along Highway 85/87, to include a traffic light and a railroad crossing. Later phases will construct a new road that will link Highway 85/87 to C&S Road and Fountain Mesa Boulevard. Construction is planned to begin on the project the week of June 4th, following the Memorial Day Holiday.
