Construction Notice - 144th and Sable Traffic Signal Project


On Jan. 11, the 144th Avenue and Sable Boulevard Traffic Signal project will commence with the first phase of construction. The first phase will consist of underground utilities, boring operations, signal pole foundations and additional ground-level work. The work will result in lane closures and delays if you are traveling along the corridor. Alternate routes are advised during the construction. 

Phase one will be active for about 30 to 40 days. Phase two will begin later in the year once the signal equipment arrives and is prepared for installation. The signal equipment has been ordered, followed by manufacturing, delivery, preparation for installation and finally, installation. 

The intersection of East 144th Ave. and Sable Blvd. is currently a four-way stop, part of the design phase ahead of the installation of the traffic signal. The future configuration will be a fully-signalized intersection with modified timing plans to accommodate the high volume of north and south traffic on Sable Blvd.

Construction of the traffic signal is expected to increase the safety of the intersection, reduce the severity and frequency of accidents and improve efficiency and operational use of the busy corridor.

“As the City of Brighton continues to grow, we anticipate many new traffic signals within our transportation system,” said Christopher Montoya, Public Works Engineering Manager. “Sable Blvd. was formerly a state highway owned by the Colorado Department of Transportation, where ownership was transferred to the City of Brighton around 2011. This will complete the second traffic signal along the corridor.”
