City Sees Results from Street Maintenance Investments

The City of Grand Junction has invested $28 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 2022 for this effort is from two sources: $2.8 million from the City’s 0.75% sales tax for capital improvements and $1.5 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 five years of the program, a PCI study rated the City’s street network at a 72 – placing the City in good standing on its goal to increase PCI to at least 73 by the end of 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 2022, 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 the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). CDOT has scheduled North Avenue for an overlay and median reconstructions in 2022. Various utility providers have been diligently upgrading/updating their respective utilities prior to the overlay.
