  • Digging up Keenesburg

Vista West, the new development underway on Cedar Street, has been excavated to  great depth, mixed, refilled, and packed, by the builder, Richmond Homes.  Why these mole-like tendencies?  They have good reason:  Colorado’s most significant geologic hazard is expansive, or swelling soils.  The land around Keenesburg, like many of the populated areas of Colorado, has soils laced with layers of bentonite and montmorillonite (weathered volcanic ash).  These clays can expand up to 20% by volume when exposed to water, and exert a force of up to 30,000 lbs. per square foot on any structure, roads, buildings, pipelines built on them.  The builders are taking care to excavate and remix the soils, repacking it, and hydrating it to reduce undue shrinking/expansion.  So, in spite of the dust that fills your driveway whenever we have a west wind, it is a good thing for future residents.

  • New Sidewalks
New walkways, paid for by a Weld County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) of $212,000, were installed on Woodward, Ash, Stewart, and Gandy this spring.  Wider sidewalks and ADA compliant ramps now connect neighborhoods with high concentrations of seniors residents within town limits to Main Street.  The Town has budgeted $375, 000, for further improvements in 2024. 
  • Bustang/Outrider Bus Service
    The Colorado Department of Transportation’s Interregional Express (IX) bus service connects commuters along the I-25 Front Range and I-70 Mountain Corridors. By linking major local transit systems together, the Bustang service responds to demand from the traveling public to have a reliable transit alternative along the highest-traveled corridors in the state.
  • Be Aware!
Don't fall for scammers!  Public Works Town employees will always be wearing a Town of Keenesburg badge when making a service call. Public Works will never go to your property after hours unless requested by the resident for any water-related issue. Be aware of impostures and notify the Police of any suspicious activity.  Town employees are listed here.
