North Avenue Projects
Although located within city limits, North Avenue is a State highway and is under the purview of the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). Infrastructure, such as water and sewer lines that are located within North Avenue, are the responsibility of the City.
North Avenue Sewer Improvement Project
The project will perform spot repairs to the sanitary sewer pipe, replace four manholes, and replace aging brick riser rings in 58 manholes in North Avenue between 1st Street and 30 Road. This work is being done now in anticipation of the Colorado Department of Transportation's April 2022 Overlay of North Avenue. The majority of the work will be done at night to minimize traffic impacts. The project is expected to be complete by January 22, 2022.
For updates on how the project will affect traffic, refer to the Projects Affecting Traffic Reports each Friday.
Colorado Department of Transportation US 6 North Avenue Improvements
In addition to the sewer improvement project initiated by the City of Grand Junction, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is in the design phase of the North Avenue Improvement Project that will impact the curb-to-curb design of the roadway. This project will include resurfacing the road and installing new medians to control access, improve safety, and improve traffic flow. CDOT is also in the design process to eventually upgrade the traffic signals on North Avenue with more reliable and modern signal equipment. More information can be found on CDOT's US 6 North Avenue project website.
North Avenue Enhanced Transit Corridor Study
The Regional Transportation Planning Office (RTPO) and the City of Grand Junction are leading an Enhanced Transit Corridor Study on North Avenue from 1st Street to the I-70 Business Loop. This project will define a vision for the corridor and identify a set of prioritized street infrastructure projects to make the corridor more comfortable for people biking, walking, and taking transit.
