Lazy K Park and Housing Project (West Tomichi)

Palisades Street, Curb, and Drainage Improvements

  • The Palisades Road & Drainage Improvement Project was split between two calendar years. The first phase took place in 2021 and consisted of realignment and added safety improvements to the intersection of 11th and Quartz Streets and Spencer Avenue. The second phase of the project is taking place in 2022 and consists of paving and rehabilitation streets, installation of new curb & gutter, valley pans,  ADA Ramps, tree removal, clearing and grubbing, drainage improvements, and landscaping repairs to disturbed areas in the Palisades Subdivision.  For additional information regarding the project, call 970-765-0646 or receive email updates on the project, please email

Palisades 8.8.22

Ohio Avenue Multimodal Project
The project went out to bid on April 20, 2022 and bidding closed on May 24, 2022. Unfortunately, no favorable bids were received. This was due to several factors including several delays out of our control to get the bid out early in the season, the rapidly escalating price of materials, and labor shortages in the area.
The City has no other option than to delay construction of the Ohio Avenue Multimodal Project until the 2023 construction season. The plan is to put the project out to bid in the fall of 2022 and to look for additional grant funding to cover the possibility of a budget shortfall due to the rapid inflation of building materials.
