Construction begins May 16 and lasts into September, intermittent intersection closures expected
If the intersection of Broadway and Plaza Drive is part of your daily routine, please give yourself extra time to navigate upcoming construction.
On Monday, May 16, Douglas County will begin work to replace the signal and aging concrete at that intersection. Construction is expected to last into early September.
This maintenance project will include the newest traffic signal technology and the replacement of the aging concrete. The lane configurations through the intersection will remain the same.
During construction, two through lanes will be open on northbound and southbound Broadway. Drivers on eastbound and westbound Plaza Drive will experience some detours. Some turn lanes will also be closed at various times, and the intersection will experience intermittent closures up to 15 minutes at times. Please watch for detours and give yourself extra time.
Drivers can also expect shifting traffic lanes, a tighter driving space, noise, and concrete dust. Working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., so please slow down and watch for crews. Lane closures and detours may be in place outside of these working hours as concrete sets.
Most road infrastructure is expected to last about 40 years. Highlands Ranch was founded in 1981, which means the original infrastructure is nearing the end of its expected life. In fact, this signal is one of the oldest in Douglas County. That’s why Douglas County is being proactive and planning maintenance projects, like this one.
A safe and accessible multimodal transportation network is one of the Board of County Commissioner’s six core priorities. Read more about the County’s transportation initiatives online.
