Below are the locations scheduled by City Public Works for 2C and other road upgrade programs on the Westside during the time frame of Sept. 5-19. (Note: The schedule includes a full closure of 21st Street between Colorado and Pikes Peak avenues through Sept. 12.)
       - 19th Street from King Street to Mesa Road - paving.
       - 21st Street from Colorado Avenue to Pikes Peak Avenue - digout.
       - 21st Street from Broadway Avenue to Cimarron Street - concrete.

       2C was the name of the city-sponsored ballot measure that voters approved in last November's election. It established a .62 percent sales tax over a five-year span, dedicated to road improvements.
       The upgrades consist of concrete upgrades (where applicable) and new paving on a prioritized list of road segments. A city website with 2C information can be found at
