W. 50th Avenue Sidewalk (McIntyre Street to Fairmount Elementary School) Golden, CO 80403

Posted on November 19, 2020 at 9:07 AM by Lindsay Townsend

Project Scope:
In 2017, Jefferson County was awarded a Safe Routes to School infrastructure grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to construct an 8-foot shared-use paved path from McIntyre Street to the entrance of Fairmount Elementary School.

Project Update (as of November 19, 2020):
All construction of the sidewalk, curb and gutter, ditches and revegetation has been completed by Jefferson County’s contractor, Edge Contracting, Inc.

Jefferson County Road and Bridge crews milled, paved, and striped the road in mid-October. Road and Bridge will get new Cross Walks installed by as soon as practical during warm temperatures.


Edge Contracting will have Flashing Beacons installed at the Fairmount Elementary School driveway and along the westbound lane of 50th Avenue by the end of November.  They will also have a short segment of fence placed at the edge of the elementary school.

Thank you so much to all of the area residents and businesses, and especially Fairmount Elementary School members for the patience and support provided during this project.
