A map of the project area.

Project Map

The intersection of College Avenue and Drake Road is a major intersection in Fort Collins. In addition to carrying a high volume of vehicular traffic, this intersection sees pedestrian and bicycle use and is near other transportation networks, including MAX and a MAX commuter lot and the Mason Trail.

Project Goals#

This project seeks to improve safety and efficiency of the intersection. Highlights include:

  • Dual left turn lanes from all four directions
  • Increase capacity for waiting vehicles
  • Improve safety of right turn movements
  • Improve safety and accessibility for pedestrians and bicycles.

In addition, flooding concerns at the intersection will be addressed and this project will reduce conflicts for turning vehicles.
