In 2021, Greeley Public Works will expand, improve, and rebuild 35th Avenue between 4th and F streets as a part of Keep Greeley Moving.
Last year, at the start of the design process, Greeley officials and project designers gathered input, advice, and thoughts about the project from area residents and commuters. Now officials have preliminary design plans, about 30 percent complete, and want to share those with the public and take further input.
To share the latest designs and gather feedback, city officials will hold an open house meeting from 6-7 p.m., Feb. 6, at Faith Bible Baptist Church, 320 35th Ave.
At the open house, Greeley officials and project designers will discuss the design choices and project decisions so far, which include roundabouts at C and F streets. Project officials found roundabouts would provide the best option for safety, cost, and traffic flow based on current and future use of the north 35th Avenue corridor.
A two-lane rural road, 35th Avenue in north Greeley has limited right-turn lanes and no sidewalks or bike lanes. That stretch now serves Greeley as a regional corridor and the city has expanded and developed along both sides of north 35th Avenue. However, the significant northern gateway remains in poor condition. Many requests for sidewalks along that stretch of road have come to the city throughout the years.
This project will widen 35th Avenue from 4th to F Street and will add on-street bike lanes, curb, gutter, sidewalks, landscaped medians, and roundabouts at C and F streets.
Keep Greeley Moving (KGM) — a voter-approved seven-year 0.65 percent sales tax — provides funding to improve and repair Greeley roads. The KGM program includes road expansion projects such as 35th Avenue. KGM also repairs and improves neighborhood roads, arterial and collector streets, and concrete and sidewalk infrastructure. The tax, and the KGM program, ends (sunsets) Dec. 31, 2022.
