Colorado State University Hughes Stadium was the home of the CSU Rams from 1968 until 2016. The school’s governors elected to build a brand new state of the art stadium on campus instead of spending an estimated $35-$40 million on minimal repair work at Hughes.
In March of 2018, Connell Resources was subcontracted by Independence Excavating and Demolition, a Cleveland base contractor to complete site grading, asphalt and concrete recycling and final site restoration seeding.
Independence completed all of the major vertical demolition work while Connell Resources provided services to transport the concrete and asphalt rubble to an onsite processing yard. Once in pile, Connell processed and crushed approximately 40,000 tons of concrete into a CDOT Class 5 aggregate base course. Connell exported this class 5 aggregate base course from the Hughes Stadium site and utilized it on numerous projects within northern Colorado reducing the impact on the environment for the need of virgin aggregate materials. All 40,000 tons of materials were crushed and removed from the site by December 10th, 2018.... Read More
This project consisted of 2100 feet of 24″ Sewer Collection Main through a heavily populated and high traffic area of Loveland. Sewer lay depths ranged from 18′-22′. The installation required the relocation of waterline and storm sewer infrastructure, along with coordinating the relocation of many other utilities (electric, gas and telecommunications). Project required extensive public outreach and highly coordinated traffic and pedestrian control. Project challenges included multiple shoring systems, restricted access and groundwater conditions.... Read More
This project was mandated by the Colorado Division of Water Resources to provide a safer spillway for the dam constructed in the early 1900s. This new spillway will accommodate a 500 year flood event.
Connell was contracted to excavate for the new spillway and dispose of the excavated material to create a berm between the spillway and the existing dam. Work included 200,000 CY of channel excavation, the installation of two concrete spillway control structures with sheet piling and articulated concrete block armoring (appx. 27,800 SF) The project also included, excavation and backfill of structures, final grading, topsoiling and revegetation....

In coordination with The District at Campus West development on Plum Street, Connell Resources was hired by the City of Fort Collins to upsize the existing 8″ and 10″ sanitary sewer line to a 12″ PVC pipe from Shields Street north of City Park Avenue. To help mitigate existing flooding issues on Plum Street, the storm drainage system also was upsized. It was moved to the east side on Shields Street and approximately 230 linear feet of 36″ PVC pipe was installed from the intersection of Shields and Plum Streets south along Shields Street. A combination of 21″ and 30″ PVC pipe totaling 570 linear feet was installed along Plum Street to Aster Street. Two 10′ storm water drainage inlets were installed on Plum Street near Aster Street, and five manholes were installed.... Read More
Connell Resources installed storm sewer backbone and ponds for the Northeast College Corridor for the City of Fort Collins. The installation required relocation of existing utilities at road crossings. Extensive dewatering was required before installation of the utilities. This project also required relocation of multiple large diameter water and sewer lines.... Read More
Connell Resources constructed a 36″ diameter potable waterline consisting of approximately 2,630 linear feet of steel pipe, pipe fittings, valves, air release assembly, blow-off mechanism, metering manhole, control valve vault, and appurtenances for the City of Loveland.... Read More
This project encompassed the extension of a 20″ PVC waterline to serve as a parallel pump station discharge to a City of Loveland pressure zone. The bulk of the 20″ waterline installation was directionally drilled beneath Eisenhower Boulevard (US Highway 34). The project also included three connections to an existing 24″ waterline, one extension outside of the ultimate right of way, and two connections to a 20″ Fusible PVC bored crossing of Highway 34. In addition, the project included four 16″ butterfly valves in concrete vaults, as well as traffic control and asphalt patching.... Read More
Connell Resources installed a new waterline around the Oval on the CSU campus via horizontal directional drilling for all main lines. Connell Resources coordinated all tie-in work with planned activities scheduled throughout the summer. The Oval work encountered many unknowns that Connell Resources adjusted for while maintaining the project schedule. This project was completed with minimal traffic disruption.... Read More
This project involved reworking the City of Fort Collins’ waterline infrastructure along College Avenue including side streets from Mulberry south for 3/4 of a mile. Connell Resources was involved in the early stages of this project as part of a Master Service Agreement. During the design phase it was discovered that the surfacing repairs and impact to the traveling public on College Avenue (Highway 287) would cause an open-cut installation to be cost prohibitive, therefore a trenchless solution was pursued. This project included pipe bursting operations performed by Connell Resources and new pipe installation by a directional drilling subcontractor. Both methods required the use of temporary water services. Connell Resources bored 16 water services across the highway using a pit bore machine. This project was adjacent to many businesses that needed to stay open during construction. Connell Resources installed pedestrian fencing on the sidewalk to allow access for foot traffic, limiting the work area to one lane of College Avenue. One 12″ storm drain was also installed using HDD on line and grade.... Read More
Connell Resources was the selected CM/GC Contractor by the City of Fort Collins. Construction of the Lincoln Corridor Project included phased roadway reconstruction, new drainage facilities including buried detention facilities, addition of medians, and wider bike lanes on this important gateway corridor for the City of Fort Collins. Work included early coordination of design and budgeting services as well as value engineering work to help the design team produce a successful revitalization of the corridor. Construction was phased due to permit requirements involved with the removal and replacement of the dual-span bridge over the Poudre River. The bridge portion of the project included river diversion, bridge demolition, utility installations, and construction of a two-span bridge. Corridor construction included lighting and landscape as well as storm drainage and roadway construction.... Read More
