Westside locations among city street upgrades listed through Oct. 9

       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. 26-Oct. 9.
       -- Lower Gold Camp Road from 21st Street to 26th Street - concrete.
       -- 21st Street from Broadway Avenue to Lower Gold Camp Road - paving.
       -- 24th Street from Kiowa Street to Pikes Peak Avenue - concrete.
       -- 24th Street from Kiowa Street to Bijou Street - concrete.
       In general, note that there could be traffic impacts at any time in the work locations, including the temporary loss of a through lane or even a detour around the site.
       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
