21st Avenue Neighborhood Improvements10th to 13th street
For three months, 21st Avenue between 10th and 13th streets will close to construct neighborhood improvements including new sidewalks, curbs, gutters, and stormwater infrastructure.
In addition to replacing old concrete infrastructure and building new pieces where none existed before, this project will construct pedestrian safety improvements such as raised crosswalks near Maplewood Elementary School. The upgraded stormwater infrastructure in the area will help drainage during rain and storm events.
Work crews finished all of the repairs to the old concrete sidewalk, curb, and gutter along 21st Avenue between 10th and 13th streets. Additionally, nine ramps were updated and improved to meet modern ADA requirements.
Construction continues on the 10th Street inlet. Work was delayed due to a conflict with a nearby phone line. However, officials found a way to install the inlet as planned without moving the phone line, but parts of the process had to be done out of the normal order.
Crews will soon begin work on replacing one of the asphalt parking lots near Maplewood Elementary School with a concrete lot.
Project designers are working on the design of a raised crosswalk to be installed later in the project.
• Federal grant dollars and the Keep Greeley Moving program will both fund this project.
• This project will have a major impact on Maplewood Elementary School. Greeley staff worked with school officials during the past several months to create a plan for school traffic and safety. During construction, school pick-up and drop-off traffic should use 22nd Avenue on the west side of the building, however, the front doors on the east will remain open and serve as the primary entrance. School parking will be available to the north and south of the school on 11th and 13th streets respectively.
• For non-school traffic, detours will be established and signed. Officials recommend drivers find alternative routes when possible. Construction officials will maintain local access during construction.
• As new concrete sidewalks and structures are completed, the freshly poured concrete will become off-limits to foot traffic for 24 hours and will stay closed to vehicle traffic for up to seven days.
