Dangerous Stretch of Road Has Residents Demanding Solutions

Posted on September 2, 2022 by

96th Ave, between Buckley Road and Tower Road, was a fairly innocuous stretch after opening in 2015. Fast forward half a dozen years and it seems to be a major thoroughfare for trucks moving from highway 85 to Tower Road. Adding to the stress of the road, two streets from the Southlawn area pushed through from the north and Buffalo Highlands was built to the south.

As the traffic count has gone up, so has the accident count. One resident, who’s house backs up to 96th, said that there have probably been 12 to 16 accidents at the intersections over the past year, and single vehicle accidents during snowstorms are in the dozens.

Over the past month there have been four multi-car accidents on this stretch of the road. Residents are getting concerned and want the city to do something about it.

A city council member reported that the city will be installing a temporary traffic signal at the intersection of Telluride/Reunion Pkwy and 96th as a short-term fix until 96th is built-out and a permanent signal is installed. This will however take six to eight months, which many believe is too long.

Several residents have suggested that concerned citizens can help by submitting a request asking the city to act faster at www.c3gov.com/living-in/ask-c3.
