New Traffic Pattern Near Mesa Middle School
The Town is addressing traffic and pedestrian safety concerns near Mesa Middle School in coordination with Douglas County School District. A Town traffic study identified improvements to enhance vehicular and pedestrian safety and streamline student drop-offs. The improvements include a new road striping plan to help streamline traffic on Mitchell Street near Mesa Middle School, shown in the map LINK.
The total cost of the improvements is estimated at $11,600 with construction completed by Town staff with funds available in existing Town roadway and marking maintenance funds. This striping plan includes:

  • Additional paved parking stalls for overflow parking related to student pickup and drop-off queuing.
  • Separate through and right-turn lanes on North Mitchell Street near Edge Cliff Avenue. The through lane will be a dedicated queuing line for student pick-up and drop-off. The right-turn lane will allow motorists to turn without disruption from school traffic.
  • A speed cushion on the south side of the Mitchell Street pedestrian crosswalk to slow vehicle speeds and traffic control barriers at the west end of the asphalt pedestrian path
