Traffic signal at Mason and Laurel Street intersection activates Wednesday

A new traffic light at the Laurel and Mason Street intersection north of CSU’s campus has been installed. Beginning Wednesday, the traffic light will transition from flashing to solid signals.

The newly converted Mason Street includes an added southbound lane that sees heavy bicycle, pedestrian and vehicle traffic.


Since pedestrians are trespassing on Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway (BNSF) property if they cross the open railroad track area, they could be ticketed by Fort Collins police. Designated crosswalks allow prevention of this problem.

Changes to Mason Street are in preparation of the MAX Bus Rapid Transit service, which will travel with vehicles in certain sections of Fort Collins’ streets and follow its own guideway in other sections.
