West 29th Street Closed for Storm Drain Improvement: Begins June 27
To improve a section of Greeley’s storm drain system, Public Works will close West 29th Street between 31st Avenue and West 30th Street.
Starting Wednesday, June 27, that section of road will completely close for about two weeks and then reopen to two-way traffic with some roadwork for the final two weeks of the project. All businesses near the construction will remain open for the duration of the project.
Detours signs will direct drivers to use 31st Avenue during the complete closure.
This project will replace about 100 feet of storm line and replace two existing inlets with larger inlets. Additionally, the project will add a new inlet and 43 feet of trench drain. All this work will reduce street flooding and help protect buildings near the south side of West 29th Street from 10-year, and larger, storm events.
These sorts of closures are necessary to ensure the integrity of the city’s stormwater infrastructure and the safety of the workers performing the repairs.
