Work begins on 120th Avenue walkway project

    HENDERSON — Brighton Mayor Dick McLean addressed the collaborative efforts it took to make the 120th Avenue walkway possible for students at Prairie View High School at a Dec. 5 ribbon cutting.

    Officials from Brighton, Commerce City and School District 27J attended a ribbon cutting for the walkway, which became a reality through the collaborative efforts of the three entities.
    They entered into an intergovernmental agreement where Brighton would perform the construction, Commerce City would pay for the project and 27J would maintain the walkway once it’s complete. The asphalt walkway stretches about one-quarter mile on 120th Avenue from the high school to Peoria Street.
    Prairie View High School eleventh graders Sloan Rice and Kiersten Dean cut the ribbon for the new walkway on 120th Avenue for students. Students in John Layton’s marketing class were asked to participate in the ribbon cutting for a hands-on learning experience.
