The 2017 Updates to Watch for on Boulder’s Roads
GOING ALONG CANYON BLVD IN DOWNTOWN?
The city of Boulder is undergoing a corridor study on Canyon Blvd from 9th to 17th Streets. The city is aiming to improve current conditions through design, landscape, and placemaking. The study is currently underway. For more info, go to BoulderColorado.gov.
CU’s WILLIAMS VILLAGE TO GET AN UNDERPASS
The intersection of 30th and Colorado, heavily trafficked by students and residents of Williams Village, is primed to get an underpass. While the underpass caters to bicyclists and pedestrians, other improvements along 30th St. will help to improve travel for motorists and transit riders as well.
HEADING SOUTH INTO TOWN FROM US 36?
Several safety improvements have been put into place at Violet Avenue and US 36. Enhanced visibility and road design, along with a section of missing sidewalk, were added on the south side of Violet Ave. and a new right-turn lane was added for northbound traffic on US 36 at 26th St. (directly across from Violet Ave.).
NEW MULTI-USE PATH TO CONNECT GUNBARREL AND CENTRAL BOULDER
A 10-foot-wide, off-street multi-use path will connect Andrus Road ( just south of Jay and 63rd) and the Airport Road office park ( just above the Valmont Bike Park). It will feature a pedestrian crossing at 61st Street and a pedestrian/bicycle bridge over Fourmile Canyon Creek. The path opened construction this summer and is set to take six months.
