From Monday, June 25 through mid-August 2018, crews installed new signalized lights and curb ramps that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) at the intersection of Colorado Highway 15 and 2nd Avenue in Monte Vista, within Rio Grande County in Southwest Colorado.


Background

The new signal stems from a regionwide intersection priority study that was conducted from 2014 to 2015. Local agencies nominated over 100 locations across Southwest Colorado for the study.

The intersection of CO 15 and 2nd Avenue sees between 2,100 to 3,300 vehicles per day. Due to the traffic volumes, the town of Monte Vista and CDOT included the CO 15 and 2nd Avenue intersection in the study.
