Cyclists, skateboarders and pedestrians around Colorado Mesa University should have quicker and safer access starting next fall.
Plans are underway to construct about a mile’s worth of sidewalk for an additional travel lane for non-motorized travel around most of the school’s perimeter. The current sidewalk will serve as a bike lane and another sidewalk, on the inside, will be designated for pedestrians.
A California convicted killer was advised Friday by a Mesa County judge of the possibility of life in prison or death if convicted in the 2010 slaying of a homeless man along the Colorado River in lower downtown Grand Junction. Joseph Conn, 25, was ordered Friday held at the Mesa County Jail on $500,000 bond, despite the fact he’s unable to post any type of bond because of a life prison sentence he’s serving for the 2011 murder of a man in California.
