We are thrilled to report that CDOT has begun work on the retaining wall in Downtown Evergreen that was damaged by the September floods. We have been in contact with CDOT as well as the other stakeholders along Highway 74 regularly since the floods and have maintained a communication link between Downtown Evergreen and the agencies involved.
As of the last week, The portion of the wall that was lying in the creekbed has been removed and Bear Creek has been cleared of all of the debris from the wall failure. The next steps involved include repair of the utilities that were affected by the failure and subsequent scouring. Then a new retaining wall will be constructed to reinforce the embankment of the creek.
