Beaver Creek Boulevard Redesign
Beaver Creek Boulevard
The Town of Avon has taken its next significant action in bringing walkability, bike safety, and parking and streetscape improvements to the Town core when it implemented a new test traffic pattern on East and West Beaver Creek Boulevard, from Lake Street to Beaver Creek Place. Monitoring the use of the street has given valuable information to Town officials as they determine the future of the corridor. The changes are aimed at testing the Town Council’s vision to create a more complete transportation system, demonstrating bicycle treatments that have the potential to increase safety and usability for all travelers. 

In addition to a single travel lane in each direction, the summer test includes the following changes:
• Adding of on-street parking spaces, including back-in diagonal parking in front of the Post Office.
• Shortening pedestrian crossings.
• Reducing number of approach lanes to the Avon Road roundabout from three to two.
• Closing the Post Office entrance on Beaver Creek Boulevard. 

This test case is part of a larger project for the Boulevard, which will see widened sidewalks, modifications of roundabouts, additional on-street parking, improved storm-water treatment, consistent lighting, narrowed travel lanes, wayfinding signs, and landscaping improvements. The transformation of Beaver Creek Boulevard was recently supported by a Walkability Audit completed by world leading walkability expert Dan Burden of Bluezones.

Information gathered during the test period will be instrumental when formulating a final design for the streetscape improvements. Final design of the project is scheduled this fall, with construction planned for spring 2017.
