Improvements Coming for Safer Walking and Biking East of Mineral Station
Community members encouraged to provide input
The City of Littleton has been working to identify and design transportation improvements in the area along Mineral Avenue east of Santa Fe Drive to approximately Windermere Street. The Mineral Mobility Improvements are aimed at creating safer and more complete travel options for bicyclists and pedestrians in this area near the Mineral Light Rail Station.
Using community input, the city developed a list of potential improvements to be considered. Two levels of evaluation were then used to bring forward improvement concepts that meet the city's Transportation Master Plan goals, achieve project-specific goals, and fit within the project budget of $2 million. Improvements are being considered at multiple locations and could include protected bike lanes, improved bicyclist and pedestrian crossings, and a paved and widened Mineral Avenue Trail.
Community members are invited to attend a virtual public meeting June 22 from 6 to 7:15 p.m. to learn which improvements rose to the top and share their feedback. Visit the project web page for more information about the project or to receive a link to the virtual public meeting.
Following the meeting, the presentation will be available to download on the project web page. Printed copies will be available at the Littleton Center at the reception desk, 2255 W. Berry Avenue. Comments are requested by July 6.
Suggestions from the community will be used to refine and prioritize improvements to move into preliminary design. Design is expected to be complete by the end of the year, with construction beginning in 2023.
