PUEBLO WEST — People who use the road in front of Pueblo West High School can now expect a safer street.
The Pueblo West Metro District received more than $1 million from the High-Risk Rural Roads Grant to improve Capistrano Ave., which is right in front of the high school. The money is being used to expand the road and create a roundabout nearby.
"This is huge because it does make it a lot of safer to get into Pueblo West High School by having those designated turn lanes," said Samantha Dosen with the Pueblo West Metro District.
The Metro District hopes to be done with the road project by the end of the month and the roundabout by the end of the year.
