20th Street Improvements
20th Street Continues
In 2016, the Keep Greeley Moving Program expanded 20th Street, 74th to 83rd avenues, from a two-lane county road to a four-lane arterial roadway with medians and turn lanes.
This fall the City of Greeley will continue that project and widen 20th Street west of 83rd Avenue and add curbs, gutters, sidewalks, landscaping, and a drainage system — in addition to adding a roundabout at 20th Street and 83rd Avenue.
This continuation of the 20th Street project is not entirely funded by the Keep Greeley Moving program.
This project will widen 20th Street west of 83rd Avenue and add curbs, gutters, sidewalks, landscaping, and a drainage system — in addition to the new roundabout.
Expanding 20th Street helps ease traffic congestion near growing neighborhoods in west Greeley and increases safety for drivers and residents in the area.
This morning the 20th Street and 83rd Avenue roundabout opened to traffic.
In the last few days, crews painted the markings and lines on the road and installed streetlights at the roundabout to illuminate the intersection.
With the roundabout open, phase one of the project will end and construction will take a break for winter. In early 2020, phase two will begin its work to widen and improve 20th Street west of 83rd Avenue.
That work will start in mid-January when 20th Street will shut down just west of the roundabout to allow crews to install a culvert. Later in 2020, more of 20th Street west of 83rd Avenue will shut down as work continues to expand and improve the road.
The project widened 20th Street to four lanes and added left and right turn lanes from 74th to 83rd Avenue, street lighting, detached sidewalks, curb and gutter, storm sewers, bike lanes, and raised center medians along the corridor. Vehicle sight distance was also improved at the 82nd Street intersection.
Minor Arterials are streets that serve moderate-speed and higher-volume traffic over medium distances. Access should be restricted through prescribed distances between intersections and limited direct parcel access. Minor Arterials serve major traffic generators and link Collector streets with the Major Arterials.
The 20th Street Improvements Project widened 20th Street to four lanes and added left and right turn lanes from 74th Avenue to 83rd Avenue. The project also added lighting, detached sidewalks, curb and gutter, storm sewers, bike lanes, and raised center medians along the corridor. Vehicle sight distance was improved, which required extensive earthwork and relocation of underground utilities.
