Work begins on new 24th & Colorado stoplight
Underground work has started for the new stoplight that will be installed at 24th Street and Colorado Avenue.
City Transportation Manager Kathleen Krager said the poles and mast arms for the signal have been ordered from a supplier and could arrive this week.
Her estimate for having the light operational is mid-May.
It will be timed with the avenue's lights through Old Colorado City, with pedestrian-crossing buttons and a device that will detect motorists on 24th.
Krager decided the light was needed for safety reasons after watching people cross the avenue at 24th on Farmers Market days in the summer and hearing support from Westside business and residential leaders, who have long advocated a light there because of the market, Bancroft Park and Old Colorado City's busy commercial area in general.
