City Sees Results from Street Maintenance Investments

Chip Seal Program

The City of Grand Junction has invested $23 million in street maintenance since voters approved 2017 measure 2B. The City has used a variety of different street maintenance treatments based on the condition of roadway over the last four years.

Funding in 2020 for this effort was from two sources: $2.8 million from the City’s 0.75% sales tax for capital improvements and $3.0 million from the voter approved 2017 measure 2B which allowed the City to use restricted TABOR dollars for increasing the condition of City streets.

From 2017 through 2022, over $33 million is planned to be invested in improving the condition of our street infrastructure. The City of Grand Junction’s Street Maintenance Program has the goal of improving the condition of our roads and streets with the interest of increasing the pavement condition index (PCI) from a rating of 69 to a more sustainable 73. The pavement condition index ranges from 0 (no road) to 100 (newly constructed road). After the first four years of the program, a recent PCI study rated the City’s street network at a 72 – placing the City in good standing on its goal to increase PCI to 73 by 2022.

One of the core functions of the municipal government is to maintain its street infrastructure. A road network that is in good condition is good for residents and good for the overall economy. For 2021, the City will continue to invest in its roadway network.

Please note that North Avenue is also US Hwy 6 and falls under the maintenance jurisdiction of Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). CDOT has scheduled North Avenue for an overlay and median reconstructions in 2022. This will give the various utility providers 2021 to upgrade/update their utilities prior to the overlay.
