Colorado Hwy 93 Underpass

Commuters between Boulder and Golden, and more importantly people using the Community Ditch Trail, will see improvements to the crossing at the Community Ditch Trail and Highway 93.

For many years it’s been a hazard to cross the trail due to the increasing traffic along 93, and the orientation of the crossing.

There’s a guardrail on one side which forces people to cross the highway at an angle.

No one has liked this situation, and now there’s welcome change coming.

I’d seriously enjoy having the opportunity to talk to you about your plans if you’re moving, or if you know someone who is considering a move, and needs some straight answers.

The guardrail forces cyclists and pedestrians to cross highway 93 at an odd angle. The other issue has been that it’s tough to see people crossing 93 until they are very close to the crossing, and cars are generally moving quite quickly through this area. After all, it is a highway.

Even Jason Vogel, the president of the Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance was quoted in a local newspaper as saying “It’s an incredibly hazardous crossing. Every time you come from the east, and the west, you have to look both ways and pray n one is speeding”.

Well, put, and as my mother used to say, always look both ways, so I’m sure the comment was meant to indicate that there’s much more double-checking as you attempt to cross the highway due to the hazardous situation.

The trail crosses Highway 93 just a bit south of the intersection of 93 and Marshall Road.

A Colorado Department of Transportation project is scheduled to add six-foot shoulders to Colorado 93, and to build an underpass for the Community Ditch Trail.
