Safe Routes to School Project
Palisades Street, Curb and Drainage Improvements
  • The City of Gunnison has postponed the Palisades Road & Drainage Improvement Project due to unfavorable bid amounts submitted by contractors. We will be rebidding the project in the fall of 2019 for construction in summer of 2020. By bidding the project in early fall, we hope to get a bigger pool of contractors and better pricing.

Wastewater Treatment Plant Modernization and Energy Efficiency Improvement Project
  • The City of Gunnison together with Tetra Tech and J.R. Filanc Construction Company, Inc. are working on the City of Gunnison WWTP Modernization and Energy Efficiency Improvements Project. The preconstruction phase has been completed and the construction phase was kicked off by a groundbreaking ceremony on August 7, 2019.  This multi-year improvement and renovations project is scheduled to be completed in 2021. Current operations will continue through the duration of this project.
