Most Dangerous Intersections of Boulder, Fort Collins, and Denver

By Tenge Law Firm LLC on September 3, 2019

Across Boulder, Fort Collins, and Denver, there are more than 1 million people who cross many intersections each day. Even though the city governments make great efforts to review traffic statistics and find possible solutions to reduce accident rates at the most dangerous intersections, they still occur with alarming frequency.

An intersection may be “dangerous” due to improper maintenance, larger traffic volumes, or poor design. Regardless of the cause, it’s important for you to be more attentive and cautious when you are near any of these five intersections in each city.


The majority of dangerous intersections in Boulder are near the same stretch of road. If you’re a driver, pedestrian, or bicyclist in that area, stay wary of other vehicles at these intersections:

  • Regent Drive & Colorado Ave.
  • 28th & Colorado Ave.
  • 30th & Pearl St.
  • 30th & Arapahoe Ave.
  • 30th & Colorado Ave.

Fort Collins

In Fort Collins, you might not find a busier intersection—or a more hazardous one—than the corner of College Avenue and Horsetooth Road. The daily average for vehicles passing through this intersection is more than 66,000, and reports indicate that the intersection’s dual left-turn lanes are a clear contributing factor to the high amount of left-hand-turn collisions that occur. Here are the five most dangerous intersections in Fort Collins:

  • College Ave. & Horsetooth Rd.
  • Mason St. & Harmony Rd.
  • Lemay Ave. & Drake Rd.
  • Timberline Rd. & Carpenter Rd.
  • Boardwalk Dr. & Harmony Rd.


With a combined total of nearly 250 accidents over the last year and a half at these intersections, traffic engineers are facing a growing problem in Denver. There’s been an influx of people moving to Denver in the last eight years—388,000, to be precise—and city officials are struggling to keep intersections free of added danger.

Of the most dangerous intersections in Denver, the top five are the following:

  • West Alameda Ave. & South Santa Fe Dr.
  • West Colfax Ave. & Speer Blvd.
  • West Evans Ave. & South Federal Blvd.
  • West Alameda Ave. & South Federal Blvd.
  • Quebec St. & East 36th
