24 Road was constructed in its current state nearly 25 years ago. Since then, the western side of Grand Junction has experienced drastic growth, making 24 Road one of the most trafficked roads in the City as well as a major trucking route. In 2021-2022, a bridge was replaced as well as utility relocations, moving overhead utilities underground and out of the roadway.
The final phase of the project will be to widen 24 Road to 5 lanes (2 travel lanes in each direction and turn lanes where appropriate), the construction of a modern, 2-lane roundabout at the intersection of 24 Road and G Road, sidewalk construction, landscaping, and the installation of street and pedestrian lighting.
The project has been awarded to United Companies, and work is scheduled to start February 6, 2023. During much of the construction process, impacts to the existing 24 Road corridor will be minimal; however, the project does include several utility crossings and roadway transitions that will necessitate road closures. The City and United Companies are committed to minimizing the disruption to the traveling public and area businesses. Project closures and traffic impacts will be outlined as they become available and will be published in the weekly Traffic Alert notice with the Grand Junction Sentinel.
February 6-end of 2023
Closure of G Road between 23 1/4 Road and 24 Road is planned for Wednesday, February 8, 2023.
Updates will be provided in weekly Traffic Alerts posted to the City's social media accounts, on the City website home page and published in the Daily Sentinel.
