Thornton: First of its kind pedestrian signal now in place on Huron Street

A new pedestrian signal was put into operation on Wednesday, December 19 on Huron Street, just north of West 84th Avenue, to increase safety for those crossing Huron Street. It was installed in partnership with the City of Federal Heights and the Pinnacle School, each providing equal funding. This type of pedestrian signal is the first of its kind in the City of Thornton. It stays "dark" until it's activated by a pedestrian.
