DOTI and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and DOTI will be replacing antiquated traffic signal equipment at several intersections along the corridor. The project will replace traffic signal poles and cabinet boxes. All intersections will have pedestrian features with pedestrian signal heads, push buttons and countdown timers. In addition, the project will also rebuild the intersection corners and install new curb ramps. After installation, traffic engineers will analyze crossing times and establishing half cycle lengths at intersections to provide a better pedestrian walk phase. This project is being coordinated with Federal’s Transit Speed and Reliability in order to integrate Transit Signal Priority (TSP) into the signal management system.
Locations in the northern segment are:
- 42nd and Federal Blvd. (CDOT)
- 41st and Federal Blvd. (CDOT)
- 38th Ave. and Federal Blvd. (DOTI)
- Howard Ave. and Federal Blvd (CDOT)
Design is already underway for both DOTI’s and CDOT’s traffic signal reconstruction projects, with DOTI’s signal projects expected construction to begin in Fall 2022 and CDOT’s in Summer 2023.
