Erie Parkway Updates
Beginning this week, there will be a few changes made to Erie Parkway that are an effort to improve the safety, mobility and traffic flow of that corridor. These changes are consistent with the Erie Parkway Master Plan, which was adopted by the Board of Trustees on January 23, 2018.
Crosswalk Installation: In early July, work began to install a crosswalk, with Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (flashing signs) at the intersection of Erie Parkway and Meadow View Parkway. This work has been completed, and the crosswalk is now fully functioning.
Speed Limit Changes: The posted speed on Erie Parkway between County Line Road and 119th Avenue will be increased to 45 miles per hour (MPH). This road is an arterial roadway in which the roadway is designed for a 45 MPH speed limit. For the section of Erie Parkway between 119th Street and 111th Street, the posted speed will be increased to 40 MPH. This road has the similar characteristics, and also includes the new flashing crosswalk at the intersection of Meadow View Parkway.
School Zone Removal: The existing school zone on Erie Parkway around the intersection of Meller Street will be removed. The school zone and accompanying flashing signs were installed on Erie Parkway before there was a traffic signal at this intersection. With the installation of the traffic signal at the intersection of Erie Parkway and Meller Street, the school zone and flashing signs are no longer necessary.
The Town of Erie is continually monitoring roadways to ensure safety, mobility and functionality. If you have any questions about this work, or any other roadway projects please contact 303-926-2870.
