CDOT to upgrade curb ramps at 13 intersections in Greeley

Greeley Tribune - 9/22/2018

Sept. 21--The Colorado Department of Transportation, with contractor Can Do Concrete Construction of Greeley, will start work Monday to upgrade curb ramps at 13 intersections in Greeley.

Some curb ramps along U.S. 34 and U.S. 85 do not meet new Americans with Disabilities Act standards, according to a Colorado Department of Transportation release. The upgrades will consist of widening, sloping and adding slip-resistant textures to the curb ramps.

Work will be done 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Friday through mid-December at the following intersections:

Single-lane closures are expected from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during construction.
