We are so thrilled to see one of the projects outlined in the Evergreen Trails Master Plan come to fruition with the new pedestrian crossing at the RTD Park and Ride located at Christ the King Church. Identified as one of the most dangerous crossings in Evergreen due to it’s location where Highway 74 transitions from two to four lanes and increases in speed for northbound vehicles, this crossing will make pedestrian activity far safer and more visible to motorists. This crossing also connects an important link not just from the Park and Ride, but from the entire Pioneer trail to Meadow Drive, which also has a master plan for a future continuous trail connection down the Jefferson County road to the other end of downtown.
We’d like to thank the great folks at the local CDOT operations here in Evergreen who helped to push this through and got it done. These guys have been great to work with and are really working hard to keep the CDOT right of way in Evergreen safe.
