Greeley Rising

16th Street Corridor Enhancement Project

The Colorado Department of Transportation recently selected sixteen transportation projects worth approximately $22 million as the awardees for the Revitalizing Main Streets Grant opportunity.

We are very pleased to announce that Greeley’s 16th Street Corridor Enhancement Project was among the selected projects and was awarded two million dollars towards a total $4.5M project.

Extending from 7th Avenue to 11th Avenue on 16th Street, the project will create a safer, more inviting atmosphere on a vital corridor that serves as the gateway between UNC and Downtown through improved streetscape elements and safety measures.

The scope includes widened sidewalks, increased landscaping, lighting, pedestrian treatments at intersections, public art, signal improvements, among others as identified in the conceptual design, which is currently underway.

The City of Greeley and the University of Northern Colorado have a long history of cooperation to connect university students into the activities that are available in Greeley, especially in the downtown area through a program called “Operation College Town”, which is designed to enhance the college community's experience of being in Greeley. This project was identified as a top priority by UNC and Downtown Districts.

The enhancements will promote an environment that is more welcoming to pedestrian and bicycle traffic, and support the local business community by creating opportunities to expand outdoor dining space in restaurants and coffee shops. This larger set of initiatives and individual projects such as the 16th Street Corridor Enhancement make it possible for UNC, downtown Greeley and the City as a whole to continue to flourish.
