Progress continues on the Sun Valley Boulevard Transportation Improvement Project, and now it’s time for residents to get involved. The Regional Transportation Commission has created a virtual video presentation on the project to share information with the community and gather feedback, all online.
The video and comments form will be available at SunValleyBlvd.org through May 1, 2020. The virtual process complies with orders to shelter in place and replaces the physical meeting RTC would usually offer for citizen review.
According to RTC, the project is nearing completion of the design phase with construction on the project’s first phase slated to kick off in June of this year. The work, which represents an investment of about $8 million, will improve Sun Valley Blvd. between 7th Avenue and Highland Ranch Parkway, including:
- Safety improvements
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) improvements
- New sidewalks and bike lanes
- Drainage improvements
- New pavement
- An upgraded traffic signal at Sun Valley Boulevard/7th Street and a reconfiguration of the intersection to improve safety
- Aesthetic improvements
The Sun Valley Blvd. Project was developed following the Sun Valley Blvd. Corridor Study in 2015, which focused on the area from Clear Acre Lane to Highland Ranch Parkway.
