York Street Phase I Project

Project Overview

In early November, crews started constructing roadway improvements on York Street to improve safety, capacity, traffic circulation, and drainage of the roadway from State Highway 224 to East 78th Avenue, as well as updating existing water and sanitation facilities.

 Adams County awarded the project to a local contractor, HEI Civil, in July 2020 for $10,473,874. Project completion is anticipated in late 2022. All work is weather dependent and the schedule is subject to change.

The project was funded in part with proceeds from the Adams County Open Space Sales Tax. The Adams County Open Space Sales Tax was passed by the Adams County voters in 1999 and reauthorized in November 2004 and extended until December 31, 2026.

Project Open House

Adams County and HEI Civil hosted an open house on August 18, 2020, in advance of the York Street pedestrian and drainage underpass project.
