31 Road Sewer Line Replacement

Water MainThe City of Grand Junction and its contractor will be replacing the aging sewer line in 31 Road from D 1/2 Road to E Road, starting on Monday, January 13, 2020. The primary reason for replacing this stretch of sewer line in 31 Road is to accommodate the proposed Mesa County E Road Reconstruction
Project that is scheduled to start in summer
2020. Mesa County’s E Road project will reconstruct the roadway from 31 Road east to Agape Way near 32 Road, and will also be upgrading the underground utilities on E Road. In addition, Mesa County plans to replace the Lewis Wash bridge at the 31 Road and E Road intersection in year 2021. For these reasons, the sewer line in 31 Road needs to be replaced.

The project will take about 8 weeks to complete.

Access to properties will be maintained. However, there will be short durations when the
Contractor has to temporarily close a driveway access in order to install the new sewer pipe in front of a driveway access.

Advanced notification will be given if an access needs to be temporarily closed during daytime hours.

The Contractor will be responsible for maintaining traffic access for residents adjacent to the construction areas. The Contractor will provide traffic control and on-site flaggers to help traffic through and around the work area. Temporary access and road closures will be necessary during the project.

Please drive with caution around the construction equipment and follow all traffic warning signs in the work areas.
