Avon Focuses on Road Safety for All
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.
