Hampshire Rd. & W Drake Rd.#
The City of Fort Collins is building a new crossing for bicyclists and pedestrians on the Hampshire Bikeway at W. Drake Rd. and Hampshire Rd. thanks to grant funding from the Colorado Department of Transportation. The project is an important component of the city’s low-stress bike network, and the crossing will make it safer and easier for students to walk and bike to Blevins Middle School and Olander Elementary.
Construction will begin in September 2021 and be completed in early November 2021. During construction, the intersection will be closed to north-south traffic crossing W. Drake Rd. at Hampshire Rd. Cyclists and pedestrians are encouraged to use Valley Forge Ave. or the Spring Creek Trail to cross W. Drake Rd. at S. Taft Hill Rd. during the closure. W. Drake Rd. will remain open to east-west traffic.
