US 34 & US 85 Curb Ramp Upgrades in Greeley

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and contractor, Can Do Concrete Construction of Greeley, have completed upgrading curb ramps and installing new embankments and pedestrian signs at 13 intersections along US 34 and US 85. Crews also restriped area intersections and maintained all existing landscaping. The project began on Sept. 24 and lasted 70 days, with minimal impact to traffic.

Project Purpose

Many curb ramps at busy intersections along Greeley’s well-traveled US 34 and US 85 did not meet new ADA (Americans with Disabilities) standards. The replacement of these ramps as well as new striping and installation of embankments and pedestrian signs, offer increased safety, accessibility, and accommodation for the residents of Greeley. The project also served to upgrade the city’s infrastructure.

Project Benefits and Information

The new ramps now meet ADA guidelines for compliance. They are wider than before, sloped for easier access by the public, and finished with a slip-resistant texture for added safety.
