Lights along 19th Heading up to 6th Av.
Any reasonable evaluation of the dangers inherent due to the insufficient lightening and security along the section 19th Street located between the cross-sections of 19th St. and Elm St. and 19th St. and 6th Av. would leave responsible risk management parties to conclude that a liability situation exists and should be fixed as soon as possible. Given that Mines Park Apartments are owned and managed by Colorado School of Mines in that this section of 19th St. is the only pedestrian link between the main campus and Mines Park apartments, it is in the best interest of Colorado School of Mines and its students that the university strongly pursue a reduction in this risk by installing lightening and safety measures as soon as reasonably possible.
Just wanted to let you know that we brought this lighting issue to Public Safety during the USG sponsored campus safety walk during dead day. Turns out that lighting is planned to go up along with the construction of the 19th Street roundabout/crossing!
Unfortunately, after talking to facilities maintenance, putting up temporary lighting when lighting is already planned for the path up to Mines Park is not a feasible option.
And now we wait for it’s completion!
Currently, there is a lot of construction undergoing in that area so it is decently well lit. If there is still an issue after construction has concluded USG will contact the appropriate party to further address the issue.
Thank you so much for your time and patience!
