Work on the 10th Street improvement project had to take a break during last week’s snowy storms.
Currently, as weather allows, crews are continuing their work on the south side of 10th street. Construction is working east from 35th Avenue, removing and replacing the concrete curbs, gutters, and sidewalks.
With the seasons changing and temperatures regularly dropping, project officials are evaluating the future schedule. Officials are trying to determine how much crews can complete before cold temperatures require work to stop.
Regardless of how the weather will affect the remaining work schedule, construction delays earlier this year require parts of the 10th Street project — including 10th Street between 23rd and 27th avenues — 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.
