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 will begin construction in early summer 2023, and will 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).
