SR 500 - NE 42nd and 54th Intersection Improvements

Project overview

We are in the beginning phase of identifying the best way to restore the north/south connection across State Route 500 at the Northeast 54th Avenue/Northeast Stapleton intersection, for people who walk, bike or roll across the highway.

What to expect

Once construction work starts, crews will remove the concrete traffic islands where the old traffic signals were located and install new permanent LED highway lighting.

Crews will also construct a new north/south connection across SR 500 at Northeast 54th Avenue/Northeast Stapleton. The new overcrossing will accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists and it will meet the ADA, or Americans with Disabilities Act requirements. This is another step towards improved safety and accessibility for travelers of all abilities along this stretch of highway. 

During construction, travelers may experience delays and should watch for flaggers guiding them through the work zone.  

Once a design concept has been chosen, this project will restore the north/south connection across State Route 500 at the Northeast 54th Avenue/Northeast Stapleton intersection. Ensuring that pedestrians, bicyclists, and people of all abilities have safe, equal access along this corridor.
