Construction of AT&T Cellular Facility Underway at Erie Community Park – Longmont Times-Call

Staying connected will soon be easier for some Erie residents.

Construction began this week on a new AT&T cellular facility on the west side of Erie Community Park. According to a press release from the City of Erie Parks and Recreation Department, the city has entered into a lease agreement with AT&T to provide better cellular service throughout the area.

The cell tower will be located south of the baseball diamonds in the park and north of the tennis courts on a previously empty stretch of land.

The press release indicates that the construction project will be carried out in several stages, which include the removal and replacement of a lamp post, the construction of an access road off County Line Road, the removal and replacement of a portion of trail in the park, installation of landscape screens around the facility, and construction of a 30-foot x 20-foot AT&T wireless communications facility.

Construction of the cellular facility is expected to take six weeks, and the city expects the facility to be fully functional by June.

Erie Community Park will remain open while the installation is complete. However, for the duration of the work, a temporary detour will be put in place for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists accessing the park. The city urges everyone to reduce their speed when going to this area to completely avoid the construction zone.
