Annual pavement maintenance program underway

COMMERCE CITY, COLO. (Sept. 20, 2016) –A number of neighborhood and arterial streets will soon be resurfaced through Commerce City’s annual pavement maintenance and management program. The program is designed to systematically improve the quality and extend the life of city roads by performing the right repair on the right road at the right time.

“We understand how important it is to the people who live and work in Commerce City that we properly maintain and improve the streets,” said Maria D’Andrea, public works director. “That’s why we are committed to a plan that addresses all areas of the city in a rotating cycle. While we can’t repair every road every year, this program helps us prioritize the greatest needs and make the most of street maintenance dollars in the long run.”

Neighborhood streets in Belle Creek, Dunes Park, Eagle Creek, River Oaks, River Run (cul-de-sacs only), and Stillwater will be resurfaced with “slurry seal” to extend the life of existing pavement. Residential streets in these areas will be closed for no more than one day and residents will be asked to remove all vehicles from the street and avoid use of their driveways during the work period.

Three major east-west thoroughfares in the city will be resurfaced: E. 72nd Avenue (between Highway 2 and Quebec Parkway), E. 96th Avenue (between I-76 and Highway 2) and E. 120th Avenue (between I-76 and Buckley Road). These roads will remain open during construction, but drivers should expect lane closures, rough pavement and traffic delays as the top layer of pavement is removed and replaced with fresh asphalt.

A portion of the E. 72nd Avenue project is funded through the Colorado Safe Routes to School program, which provides safe and effective conditions for students in surrounding neighborhoods to encourage walking and/or biking to school. The project includes raised concrete medians, pedestrian crossing beacons, ADA-compliant curb ramps, and on-street bike lanes.
