Work on the 10th Street project starts up again this week as crews begin working on the stormwater pipes at 31st Avenue and 30th Avenue Court. Those streets will close to traffic as a part of the storm pipe work. That construction should take crews a couple of weeks.
Digital message boards will go up at both ends of the project area and keep drivers updated about construction during the next few months — through July when most of the construction should finish. Officials anticipate work will move back and forth along 10th Street from 23rd Avenue to 27th Avenue and between 30th and 35th avenues.
Lane closures and delays will follow the work. Officials advise drivers to take alternate routes when possible. Local and business access will remain during construction.
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.
