La Raza Park Improvements
- Project Designer: City of Montrose Parks and Special Projects
- Construction Contractor: Kuboske Construction (Montrose, CO)
- Construction Cost: $106k
The City of Montrose will be making improvements at La Raza Park that will include the installation of a half-court basketball court, goals, striping and coating, sidewalk, bench, pad, and solar lights. The Parks Division will demolish and remove the existing court and prepare the site for construction. The existing court had severe cracking and was failing in several areas. Solar lights will be added to supplement the existing lighting in the park and an ADA-accessible sidewalk and bench will be added to provide access to the new sports court.
North 9th Sidewalk Extension Project
- Project Designer: City of Montrose Engineering Department
- Project Surveyor: City of Montrose Engineering Department
- Construction Contractor: Ridgway Valley Enterprises (Montrose, CO)
- Construction Cost: $89k
The City of Montrose is continually working to improve pedestrian connectivity throughout the community by constructing missing-link sidewalks, especially along minor arterial roadways. The recent completion of the nearby Connect Initiative recreation trail, development within Colorado Outdoors, and feedback received during neighborhood meetings have helped to make a missing link on N 9th St between Selig and Grand Avenues a high-priority sidewalk extension for the city. To that end, following a community walk of the neighborhood on October 7, 2020, the Engineering Department was directed to design and bid a sidewalk extension on N 9th St.
The city completed design of this sidewalk extension in January 2021. The design includes modifications to the Grand/N 9th roundabout’s eastern leg to include an ADA-accessible crosswalk, detached 5-foot sidewalks along the northern side of the roadway, and decorative rock between the curb and sidewalk.
