Beginning Monday, June 4, work on the reconstruction of 7th Street between North Avenue and Orchard Avenue will get underway. The project is anticipated to be completed by mid-August.
During the reconstruction, traffic will be reduced to two lanes, one in each direction. All business and residence access will be maintained, although may vary slightly during phases of construction. To avoid delays in your travel, an alternate route is advised.
The $1,410,769 project will be completed by MA Concrete Construction, a Grand Junction company. Xcel Energy will also be on site to replace their gas line during the project.
This much-needed project is being funded as a result of voter approval of ballot question 2B in the April 2017 election. The approval of this ballot question is making it possible for the City of Grand Junction to use the excess TABOR (Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights) funds in the Riverside Parkway savings account to augment what is currently being invested in street maintenance projects and neighborhood pavement preservation for five years. This year marks year two of the expanded funding and a variety of street projects are planned.
