Please add additional comments.
Isn't this already covered by the state? This seems redundant and would act as more of a deterrent for food trucks to do business in Littleton. I realize it doesn't cost anything, but it's still red tape.

* The re-location and merger of Lockheed and Martin Marietta to Littleton. It brought an influx of highly educated residents who have contributed directly and indirectly to the well-being of the Littleton.
* The great flood in 1965, and the subsequent changes (the dam, channelizing the river, etc.) that protects the built environment and encouraged development of homes and businesses.
* The creation of Arapahoe Jr. College (now called Arapahoe Community College, which is part of the State System...). The college gave (and continues to give) residents affordable, local access to occupational education and the first two years of a 4-year degree. Outstanding students have transferred on full-scholarships to outstanding colleges/universities in Colorado and elsewhere in the country.
* The building of the Light-Rail system with 2 stops in Littleton. It provides hassle-free access to downtown Denver, the Denver Mall, the State Capitol, University of Colorado at Denver, Metropolitan State University, Union Station, the the airport, etc.
* The creation of the Library and Museum. The Museum is a Smithsonian affiliate; only 2 American cities of our size are affiliates.
* It's the people who made/make all this possible.

Do you consider this a safe intersection? Why or why not?
I feel unsafe based on the amount of traffic and the turning lane when turning left onto Mineral. The turning lane is not long enough to accommodate all of the drivers trying to turn.


How often do you travel through this intersection? For what purposes (commute, shopping, social, access to the light rail etc.)?
Nearly every time I leave my home and return home. 3-6x/week


How often do you avoid this intersection? What alternate routes do you use?
I avoid as often as possible by going past the light and turning into Aspen Grove to access my neighborhood rather than turning on Mineral. I have not been able to avoid it when needing to go East on Mineral but that's due to the location of my home. If I did not live in such close proximity, I would avoid as often as possible based on traffic alone.


How much more often would you use this intersection if traffic operations were improved?
As often as it made sense. As previously stated, it is very close to my home.


In your opinion, what are the biggest challenges for the traffic at the intersection (left turns, through traffic, signal timing, too much traffic etc.)?
Through traffic and too much traffic in general. Left turns when turning West onto Mineral. The turning lane is not long enough and creates a hazard for the line of drivers trying to get over and stay in line to turn. I often go past the light and turn into Aspen Grove to access my neighborhood.


Do you bike or walk through this intersection? If yes, what would make the experience easier and safer?
No, the busyness of it makes me anxious and keeps me away.


How often do you avoid this intersection when biking or walking? What alternate routes do you use?
I never bike or walk this intersection. I go in the opposite direction heading West on Mineral when exercising or take my car if running an errand.


Please provide additional comments
The overall traffic is very frustrating and adds greatly to commutes. After turning from County Line to Santa Fe, I have been sitting for 10+ minutes before being able to turn onto Mineral.

Do you consider this a safe intersection? Why or why not?
I say it is currently safe because there is little confusion about direction of travel and left turns are restricted to arrows.


How often do you travel through this intersection? For what purposes (commute, shopping, social, access to the light rail etc.)?
Often for shopping, social, and light rail.


How often do you avoid this intersection? What alternate routes do you use?
There is a certain time of day where WB traffic backs up and that is when I will avoid it. I will go east on Mineral to Broadway or potentially I will use Long Ave through South Park to access Jackass Hill & Prince St. If my destination is west of Santa Fe, I’ll wait in the line for 15 minutes on avg.


How much more often would you use this intersection if traffic operations were improved?
None. It may be perfect as it is for present development. I think improving the intersection will draw more commuting traffic away from Bowles, Countyline, and C470. But if the intersection were updated, I believe reliability would be improved and nearby land could be developed into a final state to add additional density.


In your opinion, what are the biggest challenges for the traffic at the intersection (left turns, through traffic, signal timing, too much traffic etc.)?
Evening westbound commuters are perhaps the only challenge. Due to few EB/WB corridors in the area, commuters will utilize Mineral to go west. It’s a volume issue that affects Mineral from the east, Santa Fe NB to WB (Left turn) with minimal impact from Santa Fe SB to WB (Right turn).


Do you bike or walk through this intersection? If yes, what would make the experience easier and safer?
If walking or biking, I utilize the RTD station and bridge to cross. If a Diamond intersection is utilized with Santa Fe being elevated over Mineral, the RTD access my have to be modified to an underground tunnel. Otherwise the existing bridge will be in conflict with Santa Fe. I suppose the bridge could be elevated even higher than Santa Fe....


How often do you avoid this intersection when biking or walking? What alternate routes do you use?
Almost exclusively avoid the intersection by utilizing RTD Station.


Please provide additional comments
I think a classic Diamond Interchange is the proper investment. I think any smaller improvements will have their gains wiped out by future development and drawing in new commuter traffic.

Do you consider this a safe intersection? Why or why not?
No. It is always so backed up people run the red light just to get through. Also the drivers waiting to turn on Mineral going north on Santa Fe are constantly getting cut off by people that try and get in the turn lane at the last minute.


How often do you travel through this intersection? For what purposes (commute, shopping, social, access to the light rail etc.)?
5-6 times per month. Shopping, detour route to get home from C-470.


How often do you avoid this intersection? What alternate routes do you use?
Avoid at all costs. Backed up on Santa Fe to turn on Mineral and Mineral to cross Santa Fe.

C-470


How much more often would you use this intersection if traffic operations were improved?
I would use it a lot more often if I knew I didn't have to wait 20-25 minutes to get through the light.


In your opinion, what are the biggest challenges for the traffic at the intersection (left turns, through traffic, signal timing, too much traffic etc.)?
Signal timing needs to be longer. More turn lanes on Santa Fe.


Do you bike or walk through this intersection? If yes, what would make the experience easier and safer?
No


How often do you avoid this intersection when biking or walking? What alternate routes do you use?
N/A

Do you consider this a safe intersection? Why or why not?
No. As a pedestrian, there are WAY too many cars. As a driver, at the bottom of the hill, and speed limits at 50 or 55, the stop and lines of cars come up quick.


How often do you travel through this intersection? For what purposes (commute, shopping, social, access to the light rail etc.)?
2-5 times a month, for commute, work and social.


How often do you avoid this intersection? What alternate routes do you use?
Whenever I can, which is not as often as I'd like. If I'm coming from downtown, I try to use Prince/Jackass Hill. Otherwise, there isn't much way around it.


How much more often would you use this intersection if traffic operations were improved?
Maybe 3-6.


In your opinion, what are the biggest challenges for the traffic at the intersection (left turns, through traffic, signal timing, too much traffic etc.)?
Too much traffic combined with signal timing through the entire corridor.


Do you bike or walk through this intersection? If yes, what would make the experience easier and safer?
No. I can't imagine someone crazy enough to actually go through that intersection without a car.


Please provide additional comments
I'm not sure what the realistic solution to this issue is. Anything you could change would be expensive and would need to be reflected in the corridor on the whole. Just for the love of all that's holy, please do NOT put in a round-about.
