Diverging Diamond Interchange and BRT Station

Print

McCaslin Boulevard at US 36 is now home to the Front Range's first Diverging Diamond Interchange (video link)! The joint project between Louisville, Superior, CDOT and RTD transformed the bridge into an interchange that significantly reduces congestion problems by eliminating designated left turns. This is accomplished by temporarily diverting all traffic to the left side of the road through a two-phased signaled interchange. This means that cars turning left will no longer need to wait for oncoming traffic to stop before proceeding. The project also makes the bridge much safer for pedestrians and cyclists by giving them a 12-foot wide path in the center of the bridge. Cyclists will also have the option to use a designated bike lane.

 

 

The interchange accommodates RTD bus travel as well, with designated off-ramps that cross under the McCaslin bridge and lead directly to the McCaslin Park-n-Ride, saving valuable time for riders. Follow these links for information on Park and Ride facilities and transit schedules.
