The Mill Street Repair Project

City of Brush! Public Works Department

Contact: Dale Colerick, Director of Public Works (970) 842-5001


When: Starting on June 19th, 2017 through July 12th, 2017.

What Times: 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (0700 to 1900) Monday through Friday.


What Will Happen:

  • An anticipated month long closure of the 300 thru 600 blocks of Mill St.
  • Removal of the asphalt curb on the north side.
  • Milling the 5" of existing asphalt, and removal of 7" of subgrade.
  • Reconditioning of the subgrade to a depth of 9".
  • Placement of 7" of millings as a base course material.
  • Grade and compact the base course material.
  • Repave with 5" of asphalt.
  • Replace the asphalt curb on the north side.
  • Seed the ditch bank with native grasses.

  • How This Will Impact Residents:

  • Access – unfortunately this will be a construction zone. Normal access to the homes will be limited.
  • Vehicle Parking – because the street will be under construction, there will be no access to some parking garages. Residents are encouraged to make alternate parking arrangements.
  • Trash Collection – there should be no impact to the City's trash collection.
  • Public Safety – Police, Fire & Ambulance will still be allowed to access the street.
  • The July 4th parade will need to be rerouted this year only.

  • Will My Property Taxes Go Up? No, this project is being funded by 2A and Federal Aid monies. 2A was the ballot measure passed in 2006, adding a 0.6¢ increase in the City's sales tax for roadways.


    With subgrade stabilization and a thicker mat of asphalt, this section of roadway, which has been failing for some time, is expected to hold up for long time.


    The City understands the inconvenience this may cause some residents, but it is a short term project that will provide a quality road section. The City appreciates everyone's patience and understanding.

  • Repave with 4" of asphalt.

  • How This Will Impact Residents:

  • Public Safety – Police, Fire & Ambulance will still be allowed to access the street.

  • Will My Property Taxes Go Up? No, this project is being funded by 2A and FEMA monies. 2A was the ballot measure passed in 2006, adding a 0.6¢ increase in the City's sales tax for roadways.


    With improved drainage, subgrade stabilization and a thicker mat of asphalt, this section of roadway, which has been failing for some time, is expected to hold up for long time.


    The City understands the inconvenience this may cause some residents, but it is a short term project that will provide a quality road section. The City appreciates everyone's patience and understanding.

    We would like to know if there is interest in the community in having a weekly curbside single stream recycling service available; and if so, how much you would be willing to pay for such a service. Please contact Tyler Purvis with your response at City Hall, 842-5001, or send an email to tpurvis@brushcolo.com.

    (Single stream recycling is simply combining all the recyclable materials - paper, plastic, etc, together into one 'stream').
