AURORA, CO (August 19, 2019) — Neighbors claim a poorly designed intersection in Aurora is extremely dangerous and are demanding changes after two fatal crashes in less than two months.
Aurora’s traffic engineering department said it plans to study the intersection starting next month to determine if a traffic light is warranted, but it will require parts of the road to be expanded to accommodate.
The intersection is a boundary point where several jurisdictions meet, so figuring out which city and county is responsible was no easy task. Douglas County has an agreement with the city of Aurora which says Aurora is responsible for the intersection, but Aurora said Douglas County is responsible for building out the road.
Linda Lane, a resident, whose husband was killed at the intersection two months ago said this is such an open wound right now for me, forty years and then all of a sudden he’s just gone. Another driver hit and killed her husband, Bob Lane, at the intersection of County Line Rd. and S. Powhaton Rd. not from Blackstone Country Club in Aurora. “Broad sided him at approximately 80MPH,” she said.
Lane came back to the intersection Monday after another crash. The second fatal crash at the intersection in two months.
