    City Traffic Engineers Office Updates BRUN at July's Meeting

    Dear Neighbors,

    The City Traffic Engineers Office joined us at YOUR Monthly BRUN (Berkeley-Regis United Neighbors) Meeting Tuesday, July 17th to inform us on the recent results of the traffic studies surrounding Berkeley and Rocky Mountain Parks, as well as their suggested next steps.

    I'd like to mention that they took time out of their personal life to attend the 6pm Meeting, to which we are very Thankful.

    Here's what we learned (some of this may seem like common sense, but it's important to know); City Engineers and Public Works have certain restrictions and requirements as to how to proceed based on traffic volume, traffic flow and density. These are set in place despite how we as residents feel because they must address the bigger picture of actual traffic considerations for Our Neighborhood as well as any precedent throughout the rest of the City of Denver.

    (For Example: If a Stop sign was put up northbound on Lowell at south 48th, it could cause irreparable stoppage and traffic backup far worse than what occurs today)

    This specific study dealt with both parks and their crossings at 48th (Tennyson and Lowell) as well as Rocky Mountain Park and it's crossing at Irving. A further study is required at Irving due to existing pedestrian and handicapped sidewalk access, another condition we as residents may not process the impact of.

    In short, their suggested first steps were to re-mark, stripe and add additional signage and markers and Bollards? to these locations to better structure and tighten automobile paths and predictability for drivers and pedestrians. There are some suggested additional steps if the challenges are not greatly reduced, but stats show that these solutions do address some of them.

    It is possible that some of this work may be able to occur as soon as September.

    After feedback from the BRUN Board and other attending Members, some revisions and added items were noted to be reviewed by the City Traffic Engineers Office.

    **PLEASE Remember All Berkeley-Regis United Neighbors are always welcomed and encouraged to attend our Meetings held the 3rd Tuesday of every month."
