Grant Drive Four-Way Intersections 

  • Update: Complete
  • Description: A couple of months ago Engineering Division staff received a request for crosswalks at Grant Drive and Leonard Lane. The resident was in a wheelchair and it was difficult crossing the uncontrolled intersection. Engineering performed the analysis and Streets Division crews made this intersection a four-way stop with crosswalks. The resident contacted engineering the same day and thanked the city for the work and accessible path. Later, crews made the intersection of Grant Drive and Northglenn Drive a four-way intersection with crosswalks.
