By the end of this week, work on the 10th Street improvement project will fully break for winter. Before work stops, crews will wrap up some areas of landscaping and concrete work along the western portion of the 10th Street improvement project — between 35th and 30th avenues.
As work wraps up on the project for the year, 34th Avenue on the south side of 10th Street will reopen where crews were doing some work on the stormwater system.
The digital message boards displaying project information will go away during the winter break and will come back with more information before work restarts in spring 2020. Construction delays earlier this year require parts of the 10th Street project — including 10th Street between 23rd and 27th avenues, and sections to the west — to be completed in 2020.
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.
