Lincoln Avenue Corridor

Interwest provided preliminary and final design and construction support for this prominent corridor project in downtown Fort Collins, Colorado. The project features two travel lanes, buffered bike lanes, wide sidewalks, special pavement materials to enhance aesthetics and improve safety at driveways and intersections, transit stops and shelters, on-street parking, a generous landscaped median, enhanced streetscape amenities and urban design, a new Lincoln Avenue bridge with an enhanced connection to the Poudre River, and improved stormwater drainage and water quality.

Woodward Headquarters and Manufacturing Campus

Our team at Interwest prepared the Master Plan and Final Construction documents in relation to the site, utility, grading, drainage and erosion control for the Woodward manufacturing and office headquarters campus on an approximately 120-acre site in Fort Collins, CO. Highlights of this project include innovative low-impact stormwater management systems, preservation of historic structures and the development of a Natural Areas Floodplain and Wildlife Corridor. Construction plans also included the design and construction administration for improvements to two adjacent arterial roadways involving the addition of curb, gutter and sidewalk, drainage systems and median modifications.

North College Avenue Corridor Improvements

Our team at Interwest contributed to this very high profile and constrained project which addressed improvements to the ‘Northern Gateway’ of the City of Fort Collins. This project included multiple challenges like significant access control definition and consolidation, as well as improving safety for motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and transit users, utility coordination, and incorporating urban design and landscape features. Comprehensive and detailed phasing and traffic control plans were essential, as was extensive communication with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), project stakeholders, and affected business and property owners along the half-mile corridor.

Horsetooth and Zeigler Roundabout

The Horsetooth and Ziegler modern roundabout was the first multi-lane roundabout in Fort Collins, Colorado. The intersection was built concurrently with a large shopping center whose traffic would have overwhelmed the original traditional intersection. The roundabout was designed with a much smaller footprint than would have been required had a traditional signalized intersection been used. The design minimized property and drainage impacts to the neighbors.

Fort Collins Police Services Facility

Interwest provided the site civil engineering design services along with the design of Timberline Road adjacent to the site on behalf of the City of Fort Collins. The 7.5-acre site included a new Police Building, parking for the public and a secured parking lot for police vehicles. Site design included utilities, grading and drainage. The project achieved LEED-Gold certification.

Twin Silo Park

Interwest prepared the utility and grading plans, Drainage and Erosion Control Report, and Floodplain Modeling services for this new 54-acre community park project. Twin Silo Community Park is one of a kind, featuring community gardens, paved recreational trails, an orchard, a BMX park, pickleball courts, a dog park, original artwork designed specifically for the park, and a playground that includes the tallest slide in Fort Collins.

Village on Redwood

Interwest prepared preliminary and final development plans, including modifications to the adjacent city street to accommodate parallel parking and a public sidewalk for this affordable housing project on a 9.6-acre site. Village on Redwood features a large community green space, clubhouse with fitness center, playground, dog run and a new City Natural Area with walking trails, a pond and boardwalk. The project meets Fort Collins’ Enterprise Green Communities Guidelines by using various green building techniques to conserve energy and water, and to minimize light pollution.
