US 12 - County A (3rd Street East) Intersection, Altoona


US 12 - County A (3rd Street East) intersection, about 0.2 mile west of the US 12/Nottingham Way intersection, in Altoona.


The purpose of the project is to improve the safety of pedestrians crossing US 12 by directing them to cross the highway at the County A (3rd Street East) signalized intersection. This project consists of:

  • Building two shared-use path segments.
    • The north segment would connect to the existing sidewalk system north of North Hillcrest Parkway to US 12.
    • The south segment would connect US 12 to Windsor Forest Drive.
  • Adding pedestrian signal improvements at the US 12/County A intersection.

The project is estimated to cost $122,000.

Traffic Impacts

The project will result in temporary short-term lane closures at the US 12 - County A (3rd Street) intersection.


  • Construction scheduled to start: 2021.
