Enhanced 7th Street

Enhanced 7th Street

Major construction on 7th Street was completed in August 2019 and 7th Street is now open to vehicle traffic in both directions. Furniture pieces will be installed in late September 2019 that will include tables, chairs, and benches. A dedication ceremony for Bethel Plaza (area under the Grand Avenue Bridge along 7th Street) will be on October 4 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Enhanced 7th Street Project extends from the west side of Grand Avenue Bridge to Cooper Avenue. Sanitary Sewer improvements west of the elevator must take place in advance of other hardscape elements, and would begin as soon as weather allows in 2019.

The area underneath the Grand Avenue Bridge has largely been completed. Remaining work includes three fountains and landscaping. Landscaping is anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2018.

The city in October 2016 received a $400,000 Garfield County Federal Mineral Lease District grant for this project. Read more...
