Phase 1 of this project – Southern Connector – will include the construction of a 2.8 mile minor arterial two-lane roadway between Airport Road and Moore Road, four bridges, drainage facilities, and fencing. There are four bridges on the Project that were designed for elk crossing since the roadway crosses the County’s major wildlife corridor between the Pike National Forest and the Highland Ranch OSCA. There are two, single-span bridges and two, three-span bridges. The Indian Creek Bridge on the east end of the project has a total bridge length of 410 feet. The completed roadway will have two 12-foot lanes with paved shoulders. Click on the diagram below for a larger view of the project area.
Construction began on February 25, 2019. Crews will typically be on-site Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Weekend work may be considered for critical work items.
- Week of Nov. 18 – the County’s contractor, recently installed a new drainage pipe across existing Airport Rd just south of the Airport Rd / Louviers Blvd intersection, and they are still working on the road. At least one lane of traffic will be open.
