24th Street stoplight on

       The new stoplight at Colorado Avenue and 24th Street started working this week. Photo looks west. The poles and mast arms were installed three weeks ago, but final wiring and connections were required before Colorado Springs Utilities could turn the power on, according to Colleen Dawson of City Engineering. Old Colorado City business leaders had long advocated for a stoplight for safety reasons because of the commercial area and numerous people crossing from Bancroft Park (out of view at right).
