GRAND CONNECTIVITY IMPROVEMENTS IN THE GRAND JUNCTION VALLEY
October 15, 2014
The 29 Road Bridge and I-70B Ramp project, a joint effort by the city of Grand Jucnction and Mesa County, will enhance project transportation connectivity in the Grand Valley by connecting 29 Road to the I-70 Business Loop (I-70B). The project includes nearly 4 miles of roadway and a bridge that crosses over the Union Pacific Railroad switchyard and mainline tracks, Fruitvale Irrigation Ditch, and I-70B. A ramp structure on the west side of the 29 Road Bridge provides access from eastbound I-70B. United Companies supplied more than 6,000 cubic yards of concrete for the bridge structures and more than 28,000 tons of asphalt.
