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.
Crews completed all the underground storm pipework on the 21st Avenue improvements project.
In front of Maplewood, crews removed and replaced all the concrete except the ADA ramps on either side of the school. One ramp is completely iced over and the other still has water running through it temporarily preventing the concrete work. Work will continue on those ramps once they dry out a bit.
Crews removed and replaced all the concrete on the east side of 21st Avenue between 13th and 11th streets.
Work on the 10th Street concrete inlet is on hold until an important telephone line can be moved. Because that particular telephone line supports a large part of the city, it needs delicate handling.
• 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.
