The Grand Valley has seen lots of changes over the past decade or so. Lots of these have made life better for lots of people, and other changes are maybe just a little annoying (We're looking at you, roundabouts).

When you drive the same route all week, some changes can slip past us unnoticed. Other changes result in reconfigured intersections and become impossible to miss. Let's take a look at some of the changes that have been easy on the eyes in Grand Junction and around the Grand Valley.
