An update from the Colorado Springs Traffic Engineering Department:
After an internal review, the City Traffic Engineering Department has seen that the installed signage at the Orchard Valley/W. Woodmen Rd has indeed reduced traffic speeds making the intersection safer for both vehicles and pedestrians. As a result, the City has decided not to pursue additional signage at the Orchard Valley/Centennial and Centennial/Allegheny intersections.
The Traffic Engineering Department also has received inquiries as to why a round-about was not considered as an option. The City did in fact consider a round-about and other options. The round-about intersection solution was deemed significantly cost-prohibitive versus the cost-effectiveness of the current three-way stop. As such, the current implementation will remain as the preferred solution and crosswalks will be added within the next 90 days.
