South Boulder Road at 120th Street Colorado

Centered around a new multi-use path and reconstructed parking space, the City of Lafayette sought to make multi-modal improvements along South Boulder Road from Malory Street to 120th Street and on 120th Street from Eastwind Drive to Coal Creek. The Otak construction management & inspection team would keep the project to specifications and on-schedule.

Working with the Boulder County Transportation Department and the Colorado Department of Transportation, South Boulder Road would be widened with two thru-lanes; a center turn lanes; and bike lanes. The 10-foot wide concrete multi-use path runs along Merlin Drive from South Boulder Road up to the Alicia Sanchez Elementary School, and along Front Range Drive from South Boulder Road to the Lafayette Park-n-Ride. The path is accompanied by at 6-foot wide sidewalk as well as the reconstruction of the Lamont parking lot that expands parking space while also adding additional green space. A new signalized intersection at South Boulder Road and 120th Street aimed to improve traffic with turn lanes on the north, south and west legs and a dual left-turn lane for traffic traveling eastbound on South Boulder Road and turning left onto 120th Street. An existing ditch alongside 120th Street would be piped and a new storm sewer installed.
