Starting Monday, Greeley crews will begin concrete repair work on the 29th Street roundabout, west of 65th Avenue.
Repairs will take about four weeks to complete. The complexity and scope of the project require the complete closure of the roundabout during that time for the safety of drivers and workers alike.
Signs will direct drivers to detours during construction. Construction will change access to some businesses, however, all business will remain reachable by vehicle.
An intense repair project, this work will replace more than half of the existing concrete at the roundabout. In addition to repairing damaged and aging concrete, it will update ramps to ADA compliance.
With the new hospital nearing completion, city staff decided to repair the nearly 16-year-old roundabout to accommodate hospital use.
As our concrete crews finish their work on the roundabout, the City’s overlay team will begin work to provide a brand new asphalt surface on 29th Street west of the roundabout. Greeley will overlay 29th Street east of the roundabout in 2019 after a new development project begins that will impact that section of road.
The quarter-of-a-million-dollar Keep Greeley Moving concrete project is essential to maintaining the quality of our expanding roadway infrastructure. As Greeley continues to grow, more projects like this will become necessary to accommodate the rising number of vehicles on our streets.
Keep Greeley Moving — a voter-approved seven-year 0.65 percent sales tax — provides funding to improve and repair Greeley roads. The Keep Greeley Moving program includes road expansion projects; neighborhood road improvements; arterial and collector road repairs and improvements; and concrete and sidewalk repairs and improvements such as this roundabout work. The tax, and the KGM program, ends (sunsets) December 31, 2022.
