Improvements on E Road close to completion


GRAND JUNCTION, Colo — Officials say construction of the new road section with curb, gutter, and sidewalk placement is ongoing. The final bit of asphalt was laid out from 31 Road to Agape Way, in preparation for striping, landscaping, and final clean-up.

The road has been closed for more than a year but crew members on site say the final product will be worth the wait.

“From 31 Road all the way to 32 Road, there’ll be new sidewalks with the handicap ramps and the road itself will brand new and smooth,” Mesa County Engineering’s Josh Springer describes, “No potholes, no damage at all, it’ll be brand new.”

Construction is set to wrap up in a few weeks.
