Finishing Touches on Orchard Avenue Underway

The reconstruction of Orchard Avenue from Normandy Drive to 29 Road is near completion. Crews are currently finishing up fencing, landscaping, and sod. Next week, several Mesa County departments will do a final walkthrough to approve the final phase of the project.
This project improved pedestrian routes near Nisley Elementary as well as the reconstruction of the roadway. Improvements also included widening the road to three lanes, adding bike lanes, adding gutters, sidewalks, storm sewers, and streetlights through the entire stretch, on both the north and south sides of Orchard Avenue.

Orchard Avenue is a vital link to Nisley Elementary, and it now accommodates a wide range of vehicles and non-motorized users. Pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists can now travel safely.

This $2.1 million project was split between the City and County.
