Valley Parkway Maintenance and Roadway Improvements, Littleton, CO 80127

Posted on September 7, 2022 at 3:13 PM by Lindsay Townsend

Link to see larger image of Valley Parkway map.Jefferson County Transportation and Engineering presented design alternatives at the May 3, 2022, neighborhood meeting. Residents in the neighborhood preferred the improvement to install bicycle lanes and remove unwarranted stop signs on Valley Parkway at White Oak Drive and Mountain Laurel Drive and replacing them with raised pedestrian crossings. A raised pedestrian crossing is a traffic-calming measure like a speed hump that forces motorists to slow down.

See the Project Scope (PDF) which includes information about the public outreach and decision-making process that was used for this project.

Project Update (as of September 7, 2022)

Several residents have raised concerns about the planned removal of stop signs on Valley Parkway, particularly at the intersection of White Oak Drive. The county heard your concerns and is now planning to install a pedestrian-actuated flashing sign in conjunction with the raised crosswalk at this intersection. Pedestrian-actuated flashing signs, also known as Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB), result in higher motorist compliance for yielding to pedestrians crossing a roadway. County staff supports this approach because the combination of the new raised crosswalks, new pedestrian-actuated flashing signs, and removal of the unwarranted stop signs will provide the greatest safety improvement, especially for students crossing Valley Parkway to access Bradford Primary School.

The county will host an informational session to provide project details and answer questions on Wednesday, October 5 at 6 p.m. online via Microsoft Teams. Details will be available on the Ken-Caryl Ranch website under the Community Announcements section, in the e-News, and on the county’s website.
