Moving Montrose Forward
"Moving Montrose Forward" (MoveMo) is all about equipping Montrose for a successful future by investing in public infrastructure improvements. The expansion of our transportation network (including pedestrian and bicycle facilities/trails), maintenance of existing roadways, and improvements/maintenance of water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer utilities are all part of the effort.
New projects totaling approximately $16 million are planned for 2023. As projects begin construction, they will be summarized on this page along with links to additional project information. Summaries of recently-completed capital projects are also displayed.
Capital projects are prioritized as a cooperative effort between citizens, City Council, city management, various city departments, and engineering. These efforts take into account community priorities, citizen feedback, the city’s Comprehensive Plan, known problem areas or “missing links” in the transportation network, patterns of development, master plans, and unique funding opportunities that become available. Additional detail can be found in the city’s Street Maintenance and Capital Plan.

Visit the 2023 Contracted Street and Pavement Maintenance Project page for detailed information about the city's plans for contracted street maintenance in 2023.
Street maintenance work includes crack sealing, pothole repair and patching, chip seals, cape seals, asphalt overlays, and complete reconstruction of roadways. Routine street maintenance activities such as crack sealing, patching, and pothole repair are performed by the Streets Division of the Public Works Department. Large street maintenance projects such as pavement overlays or street reconstruction are generally classified as capital projects and are managed by the Engineering Department (see Capital Projects tab).
The city maintains an inventory of all streets and assigns each a pavement condition index based on industry-standard practices. These data are used in conjunction with community feedback to prioritize street improvements using available funding. Additional detail can be found in the city’s Street Maintenance and Capital Plan.
