About the Project:

In April,the Colorado Department of Transportationwill begin work to replace the traffic signals at the intersection of Wadsworth Boulevard & 1st Avenue. The project will include the removal and installation of four signal poles, mast arms, controller cabinets, fiber infrastructure, cameras and other infrastructure. This will ultimately improve traffic flow, efficiency and safety for both pedestrians and vehicles at this intersection. In particular, the new signals with protected left turn movements are expected to reduce certain types of crashes, most notably, right-angle (broadside) collisions.


Project Schedule

  • Work at this intersection is scheduled to begin in April and will wrap up by the end of September 2021. Most of the work will take place during week nights between the hours of XX p.m. and XX a.m.
  • Intermittent daytime lane closures will occur from 9:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the weekdays
  • The project begins with underground work for the first couple of months. There will be a break during the summer with work resuming in early Fall.
