Million-dollar fixes

by Jay Hamburger OF THE RECORD STAFF

Parkites on Monday mulled options to upgrade Bonanza Drive, the busy street many commuters and people who live in the city use to drive to Old Town and the city’s mountain resorts.

Some of the key options discussed at the meeting include:

( Building a stoplight at the Bonanza Drive-Munchkin Road intersection. The stoplight is priced at $1.2 million.

( Building a stoplight at the Bonanza Drive-Iron Horse Drive intersection, also pegged at $1.2 million.

( Putting up stoplights at Bonanza Drive’s intersections with Iron Horse Drive, Munchkin Road and Prospector Avenue. The three would cost a combined $7.5 million.

( Building roundabouts on Bonanza Drive at Iron Horse Drive, Munchkin Road and Prospector Avenue, with a $5.6 million price tag.

All of the options also include packages of less ambitious upgrades, including traffic islands, to better manage turning patterns onto Bonanza Drive.

The City Council will decide which to pick. The elected officials could also nix the ideas in favor of others. More discussions are expected later in 2007.
