Carbondale’s busiest intersection will move one block to the north when Highway 133 construction begins and CDOT installs a temporary traffic light at Colorado Avenue to replace the Main Street traffic signal.
Construction on the 1.9 mile, $9.4 million project is scheduled to start on May 27 and conclude in November, according to CDOT officials, and will bring the following improvements:
• A round-about at the intersection of Highway 133 and Main Street;
• A wider highway and reconfigured lanes, beginning at the Highway 82 intersection;
• Additional sidewalks and trails;
• Extensive landscaping up and down the entire stretch, including the roundabout itself.
“When finished, the plan … will allow traffic to flow more efficiently, increase pedestrian and motorist safety, and enhance the aesthetics on this … highway,” said a CDOT press release.
