PUEBLO – City of Pueblo announces that its 2021 road rehabilitation project began this week with a total of nine streets which will be restored by Thanksgiving. The streets, in order, to be restored are Paul Harvey, W. 24th, Minnequa, High St., Broadway, Northern, Hudson, Grand from 24th St. to 16th St., 15th St., and Grand from 16th St. to Union Ave.
“We hear our citizens loud and clear,” says Mayor Gradisar. “Puebloans consistently list street repair as their highest concern for the City. As such, I have prioritized this as a key project for our Public Works Department. The work scope is larger this year, and we are getting started earlier in the year.” The repairs are being funded by the Street Repair Utility Enterprise approved by the voters which charges a fee on water bills and by the Highway Users Tax Fund (HUTF).
The rehab started yesterday, April 12, with Martin Marietta mobilizing and preparing the road for milling. Workers will begin milling asphalt next Monday, April 19, weather permitting. An additional $3,782,511 dollars’ worth of work will be performed by Martin Marietta on the nine roads designated, totaling eight miles of pavement rehabilitation.
Separate from the road rehabilitation project, the City of Pueblo has been working on building a new restroom, concession stand, and parking lots at Lake Minnequa Park which will be complete the first week of June.
