Remington Street to Close, Become More Bike-Friendly in Fort Collins
Fort Collins residents may experience some traffic congestion on Remington Street soon, but the stretch of road that runs perpendicular to College Avenue is going to be more bike-friendly.
Starting today, September 8, resurfacing will begin between Spring Park Drive and Mountain Avenue. According to a press release from the City of Fort Collins, Remington Street will be open on September 8, but will be fully closed on September 11 and 12.
The work being done on Remington Street is a part of the Remington Greenway Project, which will include 6-foot wide 'buffered' bike lanes on either side.
According to the City of Fort Collins, the Remington Greenway project is an effort to 'offer flexibility in street design to calm traffic, support active modes of travel such as bicycling and walking, integrate storm water management strategies, and provide context-appropriate landscaping. '
Changes on Remington can already been seen at the Laurel Street intersection, where traffic signals are being replaced with a roundabout traffic circle.
