The City of Durango, with funding support from La Plata County, issued a contract with Bohannan Huston of Englewood Colorado to complete engineered design improvements for the reconstruction of E. 32nd St. (County Road 251) and County Road 250.
The design project begins at Holly Avenue and extends easterly along CR 251 to the intersection with CR 250 and Metz Lane. The project then extends southerly along CR 250 until connecting with previously constructed roadway improvements.
This stretch of roadway is considered a main arterial and experiences some of the higher traffic volumes in Durango. As with many roads in and around Durango, traffic volumes are increasing as are pedestrian and multi-modal travel. As a result, the community has identified the increased benefit of more urban city street amenities along this corridor which will provide for greater traffic safety, aesthetics and accommodations for pedestrians, bikes and multimodal traffic.
