The City of
Greeley will reconstruct East 20th Street between 1st and Balsam Avenues.
Bids for construction were received April 8, 2014.
The contract for construction has been awarded to Mountain Constructors
Inc. for $1,245,430.50. Construction
is planned to begin May 27 and continue through September 19.
The project was
designed by Burnett Consulting Engineers.
The original design work, completed in 2006, was updated for current
conditions. The badly deteriorated
rough pavement will be completely removed.
The street will be re-graded with new curb gutter and sidewalks installed
on both sides of the street. New
storm water inlets and pipes will greatly improve street drainage.
When completed, the new street will be wider with on-street bike lanes.
On-street parking will be provided where it presently exists.
The street will
be closed for construction beginning May 27.
However, access will be provided for those properties that front onto
20th Street and can only be accessed from 20th Street.
All others, including pedestrians, must use alternate routes.
The City of Greeley Blue Bus Route will be temporarily re-routed to 22nd
overhead electric power lines along the south side are being replaced by Xcel
Energy with underground cables. This
utility work is nearing completion.
