Platte Canyon Road Intersections Presentation

June 25, 2021 — The City has been working with a consultant team to develop conceptual safety improvements for two intersections along S. Platte Canyon Road: W. Mineral Avenue intersection, and W. Bowles Avenue intersection. The city is currently going through this design process with a number of partner agencies to ensure all relevant stakeholders have a chance to provide input. The project is at a point were the city would like to collect public feedback on these initial concepts as staff works toward a final concept which will accommodate as many users, and address as many safety issues, as possible.

The short, 10-minute video below provides more background on the project and the work that has been completed thus far.

The City of Littleton received grant funding to address safety concerns at two intersections along S. Platte Canyon Road: at the W. Mineral Avenue intersection and at the W. Bowles Avenue intersection.

The city is currently going through a design process and working with a consultant team to develop concepts on how to reconstruct the intersections. Once these concepts have been developed, there will be a public outreach effort to collect feedback on the concepts, especially from those living and working near the intersections.

The project map below shows were the construction will take place, and the area around the intersections that may be affected.
