Morrison Road — Perry to Stuart Streets

Weather permitting on Monday, May 15, Denver Public Works will begin installing concrete medians on Morrison Road from Perry to Stuart Streets.

The medians will serve to calm traffic and provide an additional safety measure for pedestrians crossing Morrison Road at Raleigh Street.


Rapid Flashing Beacons

Rapid Flashing Beacons are a lower cost alternative to traffic signals, shown to increase the rate at which drivers yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. Here’s how a Rapid Flashing Beacon works:

  • A pedestrian pushes the button to activate the beacon. 
  • Once activated, the beacon will begin flashing rapidly to let drivers know they need to yield to a person crossing the street. 
  • After the allocated time passes for a pedestrian to cross, the beacon turns off.

2017 Sidewalk Construction Program

Denver Public Works is making the city a more connected place for pedestrians with a new program to construct and improve sidewalks along City parks. The Department received $2.5 million in its budget this year for sidewalk construction and is coordinating with Denver Parks and Recreation on vetting locations, while some of the work got underway in May.

Areas being looked at for new and improved sidewalk connections:

  • North side of City Park on 23rd Avenue from York to Colorado Boulevard — construction underway May 2017
  • Stretches of Albrook and East 46th Avenue adjacent to Montbello Open Space
  • Locations around the perimeter of Sloan’s Lake Park
  • Yosemite Street, Syracuse to the Highline Canal
