City, county win award for road work

The City of Grand Junction and Mesa County have won an award from the Colorado Asphalt Pavement Association (CAPA).  

The work was done in 2015 by United Companies and is for the "D Road Widening & Overlay Project" in the category for "City Street or New Construction."  

This project was submitted by Justin Venzil with the City as a joint project with Mesa County.  

"This is a nice example of the City and County working together to improve roads for our customers," said Kevin Holderness of Mesa County.
