Lone Tree road construction in full swing

Some major projects to wrap up by late July

Posted

Crews are wrapping up construction projects throughout Lone Tree.

So far, five major projects have been underway since mid-June, including improvements to County Line Road and Trainstation Circle next to Sky Ridge Avenue as part of the RTD's Southeast Rail Extension light-rail project.

Phase Two of the County Line Road improvements have been under construction for most of June and the first two weeks of July. According to the city’s website, this phase will continue through October of this year, with construction crews working night and day.

A second left-turn lane from County Line Road to the P.F. Chang's entrance of Park Meadows will be added, as well as a third northbound lane on Park Meadows Center Drive for access to I-25 north and south and County Line Road east. The Phase Two plan for County Line Road also includes removing the median at the I-25 southbound exit onto westbound County Line Road and adding another southbound lane to the I-25 southbound exit. Lastly, the plan will complete milling and overlaying County Line Road from Chester Street to Park Meadows Center Drive.

County Line Road near Park Meadows is one of Lone Tree’s most used thoroughfares with commuters to and from the Park Meadows mall. The additional lanes will serve to mitigate this traffic.

RidgeGate Parkway will be widened from Havana Street to the easternmost city limits from two to four lanes. Raised medians, left-turn lanes, a separated bike track and an eight-foot sidewalk will come with the project. The project is expected to start by the end of this year and is scheduled to finish by the end of 2019.

The Park Meadows Metro District is leading the charge on the construction of raised concrete medians on Yosemite Street between C-470 and Park Meadows Drive. The medians will be landscaped and will replace the striped medians that were originally there.

The Regional Transportation District is currently constructing the southeast extension of light rail from the station at Lincoln Avenue to the end-of-the-line station south of RidgeGate Parkway. The project will include three new stations and a parking garage with a 1,300-car capacity.

The Colorado Department of Transportation is widening C-470, a project that started in 216 and is scheduled to finish in 2019.
