Cascade Council Approves 1st Avenue Lane Reduction

The town of Cascade will be changing the traffic pattern on its main street, reducing it by a lane. 1st Street in Cascade is currently a four lane road. But the City Council there voted in favor of a plan to reduce it to three lanes on Monday night. Under the proposal, there will be one lane each of east- and westbound traffic, with a center turning lane. There will also be two feet of space on the outer edge of each side of the street to accommodate bicycle traffic. The council also approved the installation of traffic warning signals at two intersections along 1st Street. One will be near Cascade Elementary School on the east side of the town, while the other will be on the other side of the community. It’s not clear when the changes will be made. If there’s time to complete them before school begins in August, the council will pursue that option. If not, the lane reduction may not happen until after school lets out next summer.
