Travel alert: work on Wed., Jan 25 was delayed due to weather and rescheduled for Thurs., Jan 26. Traffic will be temporarily stopped at W 58th & Kipling (Project 2) to safely install upgraded traffic signal equipment. There will be two approx. 5-10 minute stoppages. Please use caution through the area. Alternate routes are advised.
The traffic signals at W. 58th Avenue/Ralston Road and Independence Street and W. 86th Pkwy. and Kipling Street will be rebuilt as part of the City’s HSIP 1 Traffic Signal Rebuild Project.
The traffic signals at W 58th Ave & Kipling Pkwy will be rebuilt as part of the City’s HSIP 2 Traffic Signal Rebuild Project.
The new traffic signals will:
- Implement radar detection technology to replace the camera detection that is currently in use at the 58th Ave/Ralston Rd & Independence St Intersection and the inductive loop detection in use at 86th Pkwy & Kipling St.
- Provide more accurate detection, especially in cases of low light/inclement weather.
- Help serve motorists in a more timely manner through better detection.
- Add CCTV cameras at these intersections and connect them to the City’s Fiber Network so that in the future, Arvada Traffic Engineering will be able to monitor and make adjustments to Signal Timing in real time.
Also included in this project is the rebuild of the curb ramps on these corners to accommodate ADA specifications. This will also address the locations of the pedestrian push buttons.
Lastly, this project will provide an aesthetics upgrade in that all poles and mast arms, signal heads, and pedestrian signal heads will be replaced with new equipment.
What to Expect
Construction activities will primarily take place off the roadway. No closures are planned, but during construction, there may be some lane restrictions and increased delays. Please use caution when traveling through the work zone.
Project 1 began in June 2022 and work was largely finished in November 2022.
Project 2 is in progress and work is estimated to be completed in mid-February.
Weather and other unforeseen circumstances may cause delays to these schedules.
