If the intersection of University/Lincoln & Quebec is part of your daily drive through Highlands Ranch or Lone Tree, please give yourself extra time to navigate upcoming construction.

On Monday, July 17, Douglas County will begin work to improve road quality and safety at the intersection. Construction activities will require reduced speeds and lane closures. Please plan for an additional 3-5 minutes on your drive and watch for crews.

Using traffic count data, engineers designed the project to occur in phases to minimize the impact on the traveling public. The first phase of construction includes establishing the work zone, removing the medians along University Boulevard, Lincoln Avenue, and Quebec Street, and paving the area with asphalt.

Project improvements at the intersection are designed to improve traffic flow and better accommodate bicycles at the intersection, increasing safety and mobility in the area for all road users.

Working hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.  There will be no construction work on any Douglas County observed holidays.

Please watch for crews, follow posted speed limits and do not drive distracted in the work zone.

Stay Up to Date

For more information about the upcoming work and to stay up to date on construction impacts, please visit our website.

This project is fully funded by Douglas County. Construction is expected to be completed in late 2024.

About this Project

Douglas County is improving road quality and safety at University/Lincoln and Quebec in Highlands Ranch. A project to rebuild and reconfigure the full intersection will begin in summer 2023. Work includes a new traffic signal system, raised pedestrian safety islands, additional eastbound and westbound lanes on Lincoln Avenue and University Boulevard, and a new right-turn-only lane from southbound Quebec Street to westbound University Boulevard.

Construction on this $13 million project is anticipated to begin in July 2023 and is expected to be complete in fall 2024. Douglas County thanks Douglas County Parks and Recreation, Highlands Ranch HOA and Highlands Ranch Metro District for their partnership in making this project possible.
