Starting next week, the early phases of construction will begin for Keep Greeley Moving’s 35th Avenue expansion and improvement project.
This project will widen 35th Avenue from 4th Street to just north of C Street and will add on-street bike lanes, curb, gutter, sidewalks, landscaped medians, and a roundabout at C Street. Construction should finish near the end of July.
Early next week as construction crews get equipment in place and begin erosion control and other preparation work, construction will require slower speed limits in the area.
Near March, 35th Avenue must completely close to through traffic because of the work required to relocate utilities, speed up the work, and protect the safety of crews and drivers. Construction officials do not yet know the exact start date of the full closure, however, they will share more specific information on message boards near the construction, on the project website, and through update emails.
During the entire construction process, crews will maintain business and emergency access. For through traffic, 23rd and 59th avenues will serve as detours.
A two-lane rural road, 35th Avenue in north Greeley currently has limited right-turn lanes and no sidewalks or bike lanes. This stretch serves Greeley as a regional corridor and the city has expanded and developed along both sides of north 35th Avenue. However, the significant northern gateway remains in poor condition. Many requests for sidewalks along that stretch of road have come to the city throughout the years.
Keep Greeley Moving (KGM) — a voter-approved, seven-year 0.65 percent sales tax — provides funding to improve and repair Greeley roads. The KGM program includes road expansion projects such as 35th Avenue. KGM also repairs and improves neighborhood roads, arterial and collector streets, and concrete and sidewalk infrastructure. The tax and the KGM program end (sunsets) Dec. 31, 2022.
