Construction starts Monday to continue widening U.S. 6&50
The next phase of construction to widen and improve U.S. Highway 6&50 between the downtown Grand Junction area and Mesa Mall will begin Monday, meaning the thousands of motorists who travel the highway each day should expect some traffic delays and reduced speed limits for the next several months.
The work will cover the stretch of U.S. 6&50 between 25 Road and roughly 1,000 feet east of Rimrock Avenue where the highway splits off toward North Avenue and First Street.
The project consists of expanding the highway to three lanes in each direction, replacing the asphalt driving surface with concrete, burying overhead utility lines, improving storm-sewer lines and installing medians, lighting and landscaping and sidewalks.
Construction should be completed by mid-December.
