7th Avenue Improvements


Last week, work started on installing the first permanent manhole for this project — in accordance with the Downtown and North Greeley Storm Drainage Master Plan. Along with that, crews started installing a large 43-by-68-inch concrete storm drainpipe. Those who live in the area or recently drove by the construction may have noticed the delivery and preparation of those large sections of pipe.
For the next couple weeks, stormwater pipe work will continue along 7th Avenue between 13th and 14th streets. Additionally, excavation and utility relocation work will take place in the corridor at the same time.
By the end of the week, work will move into the 14th Street intersection. Underground utility work between 13th and 14th streets will wrap up by the end of July, at which point concrete and roadway improvements will restore the surface infrastructure.

Project Background

For about eight months in the summer and fall of 2019, rolling closures will move along 7th Avenue from 13th Street to 16th Street as the City replaces and upsizes the city’s stormwater, water distribution, and sanitary sewer systems.

The work also relocates several non-city utilities such as gas, electric and communication lines and replaces the asphalt road surface and concrete curb and gutter. This work takes place in conjunction with sanitary sewer replacements near 7th Avenue and 14th, 15th and 17th streets.
