Though the project end date has already passed, we haven’t seen the new HAWK beacon crossing hardware installed on E Burnside and 53rd (though the bike lane and updated curbs look great!). Land Use & Transportation chair Terry Dublinski-Milton reached out to PBOT for an update, and this is what he received back:
- “There is a hold-up on finishing construction [at 53rd and East Burnside]- the contractor has had supply problems with some the signal equipment. The contract end date passed last week. We are trying to engineer an equipment swap from the Bureau of Maintenance to help them out and get the work finished as soon as possible- guessing another 2 weeks.”
So we should still see completion of this project soon. Enjoy the updated access across Burnside! We can’t wait to see more of these crossings to help connect North Tabor residents with schools, parks, and businesses to the neighborhoods south of us.
