Highway 74 Crossing Finally Installed! December 21, 2018

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.

In partnership between the Greater Downtown Evergreen Economic District (DEED) and Jefferson County and funded by DEED’s Evergreen Legacy Fund (ELF), this plan is offered to the community and for the community to use in development of future trails projects, grant applications and visioning for how the Greater Downtown Evergreen can develop and maintain safe and effective pedestrian connectivity.

Most everyone in Evergreen knows by now about the Greater Downtown Evergreen Trails Master Plan by virtue of our Open Houses, direct public outreach with presentations to major community groups and numerous articles in the Canyon Courier over the past several months. Our Consultant, OV Consulting, has compiled all of the great community feedback and is completing the Master Plan this month for presentation to the Technical Working Group for review and final approval.

Below are the boards representing the four key areas of focus. If you have any additional feedback on these, even if it’s simply “great job – I love it”, please comment here or email Chris Vogelsang directly at chris@ovllc.com. All feedback is valuable to the process. Thanks!

We’re proud to announce that the Trails Master Plan is underway. We had the first of four community open houses on May 20th and there was a great turnout with lots of great feedback.

A website has been set up specifically for the project on the Jefferson County site:

http://www.trails4evergreen.org

This is where all of the most current information on the Trails Master Plan as well as the planning process will be. We will do our best to keep readers of this site informed as well.

The next community open house will be in July, the date has not yet been determined, but we will post it as soon as it is scheduled.
