  • Installation of a traffic signal, pedestrian count-down signals, marked crosswalks, and curb extensions neckdowns to reduce the crossing distance across Manhattan Drive.         
  • Enhancements to eastbound transit stop.   Westbound stop to be completed by Boulder County           
  • Completion of a missing sidewalk link to the transit stop on the south side.
