City to Perform Daytime Closures of East Oak Grove Road

The City is finalizing plans to widen East Oak Grove Road between Townsend Avenue and Bear Lake Drive. Roadway construction for this project is not scheduled to begin until the spring of 2015; however, it will be necessary to relocate utilities and irrigation piping ahead of this spring 2015 start date.

In anticipation of this relocation work, contractors working for the City of Montrose will be removing select trees on the south side of East Oak Grove Road within the project area beginning the week of July 14, 2014 and continuing for one to two weeks.

To perform this work safely, it will be necessary to close East Oak Grove Road to through traffic while this work is being performed, typically between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Access to private residences and nearby businesses will be maintained throughout this and any future closures of the roadway. The city asks that motorists and pedestrians please exercise caution near the work area and please respect all coned-off areas.

Questions regarding the project may be directed to City Engineer Scott Murphy at (970) 240-1498.
