Avon Focuses on Road Safety for All

IMG_3887

Avon, CO - The Town of Avon began a six-month comprehensive safety and operational assessment of Avon Road.  The Avon Road roadway runs through the center of town with a series of 5 roundabouts.  From feedback and accident reports, Avon Road has speeding concerns and is regarded as not pedestrian-friendly.
   
 A preliminary assessment identified the Avon Road and Hurd Lane intersection for immediate action.  The intersection has been the site of numerous accidents due to drivers making prohibited left-turns.  In 2020, there were 6 accidents with one involving a serious injury to a pedestrian.  In 2019, there were 4 accidents at the same intersection.  Avon Staff installed temporary restrictive delineators to assess the effectiveness and operational impacts of potentially adding a permanent restrictive median.
