North Avenue Sewer Improvement Project – Traffic Impact For Monday, January 17

North Ave Roadwork

In April, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will be performing pavement overlay and media replacement operations on North Avenue from 1st Street to 30 Road. In preparation for this project, the City of Grand Junction has hired United Companies to repair and replace sections of sewer and storm infrastructure. 

The following final elements of this project are expected to take place January 17 – January 21:

On Monday, January 17th, 8:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.:

-    Sanitary Sewer Manhole will be replaced near the intersection of North Avenue & 12th Street 

-    Traffic through the intersection will be reduced to just one lane in each direction. 

-    Motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes. 

On Monday, January 17th, 6:30 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.:

-    The intersection of North Avenue & 12th Street will be closed for final completion of the Sanitary Sewer Manhole replacement.

-    Detour route will be in place.

On Tuesday, January 18, 6:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.:

-    Storm sewer will be repaired between 12th and 14th Street. Westbound lanes will be closed on Tuesday night and two-way traffic will be confined to the Eastbound lanes.

-    Manholes will be rehabilitated at N. 3rd St. and East of N. 7th Street (in front of Fiesta Guadalajara). At these locations, the rightmost lane in the Westbound lanes will be closed.

On Wednesday, January 19, between 6:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.:

-    New manholes in front of Old Chicago Restaurant and at N. 2nd Street will have a protective coating applied. At these locations, the rightmost lane in the Westbound lanes will be closed for several hours.

On Friday, January 21, between 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.:

-    Asphalt patching operations will occur at the new manhole at N. 12th St. At this location, a single lane closure in the Westbound lanes will last for several hours.

-    Asphalt patching operations will occur at the Storm Sewer repair between 12th and 14th Street. At this location, Westbound lanes will be closed, and two-way traffic will be confined to the Eastbound lanes for several hours.

-    Motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes.

This work is being completed in advance of Colorado Mesa University returning to classes the week of January 24. For more information on transportation projects, please visit gjcity.org.
