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 the summer of 2020. By bidding the project in early fall, we hope to get a bigger pool of contractors and better pricing.
