Pikes Peak Area Traffic Signal Enhancement Project on CO 16

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and contract partner Arrow Electric will begin traffic signal enhancements at 7 locations along the US 24 and CO 16 corridor in Pikes Peak on February 17, 2020. As part of CDOT’s Whole System Whole Safety initiative, the project will focus on adding 3 new advance flashing beacon signs to increase driver yielding rates by adding increased driver awareness of crosswalks, which will help reduce the risk of multi-threat crashes on multilane roads. Crews will also install 13 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps which will provide functional accessibility to all travelers using our state and U.S. highways.

The project will take place at the following locations:

  • US 24/Fountain Boulevard at Murray Boulevard, Jet Wing Drive, Aeroplaza Drive, and CO 21/Powers Boulevard.
  • US 24/Powers Boulevard at Airport Drive and Aeroplaza Drive.
  • CO 16/Mesa Ridge Parkway (Safeway Business Access).

Enhancements for the $2.6M project include:

  • Crews will install new ADA curb ramps and advance flashing beacons
  • remove and replace signal poles, mast arms, signal heads, conduit, cabinet/controllers, and detection controls.
