Roadway Changes Coming to the Santa Fe Drive & Mineral Avenue Intersection
Informational self-guided online meeting available now through October 21 at santafemineralplan.com
The City of Littleton is hosting an online meeting available to the public to learn more about the Santa Fe & Mineral Improvements Project. This convenient, online meeting can be accessed anytime between now and October 21 at santafemineralplan.com.
The purpose of the Santa Fe & Mineral Improvements Project is to reduce congestion and improve safety for drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists. A new quadrant roadway is being designed in the southwest parcel of the intersection of Santa Fe Drive and Mineral Avenue. The left turning movements will be removed from the intersection and vehicles are routed onto the quadrant road. This diversion allows for additional green time to be provided to the through movements, both north-south along Santa Fe Drive and east-west along Mineral Avenue.
“The innovative quadrant roadway solution is the first of its kind in the Denver Metro area so we want to make sure the public understands how it works and why it was selected as the effective solution at the Santa Fe and Mineral Intersection,” said Aaron Heumann, City of Littleton Project Manager.
This project will provide new traffic signals, new lane configurations, traffic signal re-timing, and mobility improvements at this intersection and to the surrounding areas. The city will develop conceptual designs, final design of the quadrant road, and modifications to the segments of Mineral Avenue and Santa Fe Drive impacted by the removal of the left turn movements.
Topics of the online meeting include:
- Informational videos about the project
- Introduction of the Quadrant Roadway
- Next Steps and Project Timeline
- Public Comment Form
The city is currently finalizing the design of the new quadrant road that is being presented in the meeting. A final design will be presented to the community later this year with construction scheduled to start in 2023. The estimated completion date for the Santa Fe Drive and Mineral Avenue intersection and quadrant road is in 2025.
