Concrete work wrapped up on the 10th Street project, the final sections of concrete needed to cure before crews could paint the road stripes and markings.
Crews removed all remaining traffic control related to the project. Striping at 25th Avenue will finish this week, delayed slightly by the adverse weather.
The final paving work from 23rd Avenue to 28th Avenue should begin next week, with minor traffic control and lane closures to prepare and significant traffic control and lane closures during the mill and overlay. Officials recommend drivers take alternative routes during that work. The paving work should finish by the end of September.
The 10th Street corridor is one of the most heavily traveled corridors in Greeley.
This City project aims to reduce vehicle delay and accidents, increase transit efficiency, reduce vehicle emissions, and improve active transportation through pedestrian and bicycle environment enhancements for users of this corridor.
The first stretch of the project, 10th Street between 27th and 30th avenues, took place in 2015. That work removed and replaced the old asphalt and concrete pavement, improved the roadway, and installed new curbs, gutters, medians, sidewalks, and landscaping.
Now that project continues by improving two stretches of 10th Street — from 23rd Avenue to 27th Avenue and between 30th and 35th avenues. Design and engineering is funded through Congestion Management Air Quality (CMAQ) funds.
