Concurrent North Avenue Projects

The Regional Transportation Planning Office (RTPO) and City of Grand Junction (City) also have a project on North Ave to develop a corridor plan that will lay out the vision and improvements needed to make North Ave more cyclist, pedestrian, and transit friendly. The project will add to the improvements completed by CDOT’s US 6 North Ave project. Public engagement for the RTPO and City project is anticipated to take place this month (November 2021). Information is posted on the Grand Valley Transit website:

About the Project

CDOT has finalized the design for transportation improvements to US 6 (North Avenue) from 1st Street to I-70B in Grand Junction. These transportation improvements include resurfacing the road with two inches of asphalt and installing new medians to control access, improve safety and improve traffic flow. Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2022 and is anticipated to be completed in fall 2022. Traffic impacts during construction will include reduced travel to one lane in each direction, additional travel times and lowered speed limits.  Work will be done at night and business access will be maintained.

Project Schedule

Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2022 and is anticipated to be completed in fall 2022.
