This $8 million project involves advancing improvements located on the east side of I-25.
The proposed east side improvements are estimated to cost $8 million and include fully reconstructing the County Line Road / Inverness Parkway / Inverness Drive West closely space paired intersections that currently operate at a poor level of service. Improvements involve the redesign of the two existing closely spaced intersection into a single, more traditional, intersection layout. The final design, ROW and utility relocations will occur in 2020. The proposed reconfigured intersection will improve safety, mobility and provide better levels of service for traffic operations.
Funding partners for the east side improvements include Southeast Partnership Improvement Metropolitan District (SPIMD), Arapahoe County and $1 million of in-kind contributions from the Inverness Metro Improvement District for significant ROW dedication and landscaping, (which isn’t included in the $8 million project cost estimate). Douglas County’s contribution to the improvements located on the east side of I-25 is estimated to be $6 Million. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2021.
This multi-year project focused initially on completing the improvements on the west side of I-25, (approximately $5.5 Million), which occurred over three construction seasons (done to minimize impacts to the adjacent businesses), and was completed in Spring 2019.
