Concrete Work Along 5th Street Starts Monday
Greeley crews will begin work Monday, July 11 to replace and build new concrete sidewalks, curbs, and gutters along 5th Street between 14th and 23rd avenues.
For three months, construction crews will work their way west from 14th Avenue removing old, damaged, and outdated sidewalks and building new concrete replacements. Officials expect to work on the project in phases. Work will start along 5th street between 14th and 18th Avenues. Then officials plan to move west toward 23rd Avenue finishing the work in late October.
During this project, construction will prohibit street parking on blocks where crews need the space for the concrete replacement work. Construction officials will work with individual property owners and residents when the work affects their property or driveway.
As new concrete sidewalks and structures are completed, the freshly poured concrete will become off-limits to foot traffic for 24 hours and will stay closed to vehicle traffic for up to seven days. That means some sidewalks will close and foot traffic may have to detour around work at times.
The Keep Greeley Moving program and the Greeley Urban Renewal Authority will both fund this project.
Keep Greeley Moving
Keep Greeley Moving (KGM) is a voter-approved seven-year 0.65 percent sales tax providing funding to improve and repair Greeley roads. The KGM program includes concrete repair and maintenance. KGM also fixes and improves neighborhood roads, arterial and collector streets, and expands key arterial roadways in Greeley.
In 2021, voters renewed the tax, and the KGM program, for another seven years—2023 through 2029.
Greeley Urban Renewal Authority
The Greeley Urban Renewal Authority (GURA) administers the city’s federal grants from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development that provide funding for a wide range of housing and neighborhood assistance activities, particularly benefiting low-to-moderate-income residents and neighborhoods.
