UPDATE — 08/08/2023
Public engagement identified concerns with pedestrian and bicycle crossings, conflicts, and bus stop access, congestion, and aging and outdated signal equipment. As a result, the design will provide new accessible pedestrian ramps, including raised crossings on the north side at Mineral Avenue, separated pedestrian and bicycle crossings, bike facility and crossing upgrades, a second southbound left turn lane and a channelized southbound right turn lane on Platte Canyon Road at Mineral Avenue, bus stop upgrades at both intersections, a new connection to Columbine Manor Park, and all new upgraded signal equipment.

Project Introduction:

This comprehensive initiative focuses on enhancing pedestrian and bicycle safety, resolving traffic conflicts, improving bus stop access, and upgrading signal equipment. The design incorporates a range of improvements, including:

  • Accessible Pedestrian Ramps: New accessible ramps, including raised crossings, will be constructed on the north side of Mineral Avenue.
  • Pedestrian and Bicycle Crossings: Separated crossings will ensure the safety of pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Bike Facility Upgrades: Enhancements to bike facilities and crossings will contribute to a more bike-friendly environment.
