Douglas County and CDOT are partnering on advancing the construction of the C-470 Trail & University Blvd. Pedestrian Grade Separation Project. The objective of the project is to construct a bridge to carry bicyclists and pedestrians that utilize the C-470 Trail over University Blvd (Colorado State Highway 177). The proposed bridge will replace the existing at-grade intersection configuration, which currently requires users to make four separate roadway crossings totaling eight (8) lanes of traffic, thus improving safety and user experience on this regional multi-modal trail.
This project is anticipated to begin construction in early summer 2023 and anticipated to be substantially completed by June 30, 2024 (per the funding requirements of the Safer Main Streets initiative – more information about this in the “Description” section below).
