The planned intersection upgrades will help improve the safety and functionality of the intersection. This project will include installing new traffic signals, adding through lanes and turn lanes for vehicles, and include on-street bike lanes.
West 72nd Avenue is a major east-west arterial in Arvada and carries approximately 7,000 vehicles per day near Indiana Street. Over the last decade, portions of West 72nd Avenue have been widened to a median-separated four-lane roadway, with sidewalk and bike lanes. The intersection with Indiana Street is the next piece of this roadway corridor to be upgraded. This work will help the intersection better handle increased development in the area such as Candelas and Leyden Rock.
The project is expected to begin in late 2017.
