Photo 2 - Undermining of curb, gutter, and sidewalk


Early in 2022 the City found a section of Borgen Boulevard to be unraveling coinciding with heavy rains. By spring the City found a sink hole under the roadway and declared an emergency to excavate the roadway and perform geotechnical work, which found an area of unstable soils. The City now has a contractor that will perform the emergency repairs to Borgen Blvd. that includes removing a significant section of the westbound travel lanes, installing a structural fabric and subgrade, then replacing the asphalt roadway and the concrete curb and gutter. This work will require the complete closure of all westbound lanes of Borgen Blvd. between Peacock Hill Ave. and Olympus Way for one week beginning on June 17. The City's contractor will be setting up a detour on June 17 during this closure as shown on the detour map. Nearby roadways are for local access only and should not be used as a detour around this construction. 


We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
