10th Street Work Restarts
Earlier this week drivers on 10th Street near 35th Avenue may have noticed bustling activity when construction crews began staging and preparing to resume roadwork on one of Greeley’s primary arteries.
With traffic control in place on 10th Street between 30th and 35th avenues and construction underway, drivers should expect some delays while crews continue the process of removing the old curb and gutter and building new ones. Officials recommend taking alternate routes while roadwork is underway. Initially, work will take place on the north side of the road. Lane and road closures will move with construction and signs will inform drivers about project information and detours as needed.
In June, city officials had to pause construction on 10th Street after discovering insufficient data in parts of the design plans. Officials directed the project designer to obtain the needed information and provide updated plans for the project.
Staff received and reviewed the updated plans at the end of last week and began working to resume construction on the western portion of the 10th Street project — between 35th and 30th avenues.
City officials plan to complete the western end of the 10th Street improvements this year. The remainder of the 10th Street project — from 23rd Avenue to 27th Avenue — will be pushed out to 2020. Landscaping work along both east and west sections of the project will take place in 2020 and require some additional lane closures along 10th Street at that time.
