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 October 9, 2020): 
Crews from Edge Contracting will be finishing sidewalk concrete pours and curb ramps on the north half of 50th Avenue by this Friday, October 9.

The east driveway to Fairmount Elementary will be closed after 4:00 p.m. on Friday afternoon so that asphalt can be removed and the area will be prepared for asphalt patching. Asphalt patching will occur on Saturday, October 10.

The last curb ramps will be placed at the Cornerstone Montessori School early next week.

Final cleanup, fence installation, and grass seeding will be completed by the end of next week.

The rapid flasher at Fairmount Elementary and school flasher are expected to be installed the following week.

Soon thereafter, Jefferson County crews will complete the asphalt milling and final lift of asphalt paving, striping, cross walks and shoulder work on the south side of 50th Avenue to complete the project.

Westbound traffic is being detoured north on McIntyre Street to 54th Avenue, then west toward Easley Road, and back south to 50th Avenue. This lane will remain closed for the duration of the project, scheduled to end November 30. Warm temperatures and continued good weather have helped to move this project forward. It’s expected that all work could be completed by the end of October.
