Unexpected project complications require roadwork on 10th Street to slow down and pause for almost a month while the city’s consultant updates the designs.
Crews have started to move their work off 10th Street, reopen all lanes, and finish the concrete drives into several properties along the construction zone.
This delay will affect the overall schedule of the 10th Street improvement project. In addition to work extending later this year, officials anticipate that some construction and paving will need to take place next year when the warmer weather allows for asphalt work.
City officials understand the inconvenience that comes with changes in construction schedules. We are working to minimize the impact this change has on the 10th Street area.
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.
This year 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.
