SH 119 Pedestrian Underpass at Hover Street, Longmont, CO

The SH119 Pedestrian Underpass at Hover Street is located just south of the intersection of SH 119 and Hover Street, adjacent to the Oskar Blues restaurant. To promote pedestrian use and safety, an RTD bus pad will be relocated directly on top of the underpass, and a “jug handle” link trail will also be provided. The space within the “jug handle” will be utilized to create a plaza area with bike lockers and site amenities. A high level of aesthetics in the form of multiple concrete formliners, and pilaster columns with masonry veneer are included on the underpass and headwalls. A detention facility was added to manage drainage from SH 119 in addition to the adjacent business property. Due to the complex intersection geometry and high traffic volumes, the project was constructed using a three-phase maintenance of traffic approach.
