CO 67 Road & Bridge Improvements in Sedalia

Crews on this project will make the following improvements to a short stretch of Colorado Highway 67 (aka Manhart Avenue)—between Bears Den Drive and US Highway 85—in Sedalia (Douglas County):

  • mill and pave the road;
  • widen the road to add a left-turn lane from westbound CO 67 to southbound CO 105; and
  • repair two bridges.

North Surrey Drive Full Closure

Douglas County, in conjunction with the City of Lone Tree, will close North Surrey Drive from Havana Street to Stirrup Lane beginning June 17, 2019, through September 1, 2019. This closure will allow installation of a below-grade trail underpass and utility work that is part of the East/West Regional Trail extension and is necessary to ensure safety of the construction teams and the general public. We recognize the inconvenience this closure causes for those who regularly travel North Surrey Drive and appreciate your patience and understanding. Crews will do everything possible to limit the duration of the closure.


Regional Transportation District (RTD) Southeast Rail Extension (SERE) Project (Light Rail Extension)

As part of RTD’s 2004 voter-approved FasTracks plan to extend rapid transit across the Denver metro region, construction continues for the Southeast Rail Extension Project.

Ridgegate Parkway Widening

The City of Lone Tree will widen RidgeGate Pkwy to provide 2 additional thru-lanes in each direction (between I-25 and Meridian Village Pkwy), building new bridges over Badger Gulch and Happy Canyon Creek, installing 8-feet wide sidewalks (pedestrian) and a 12-feet wide cycle track (bicycles) along this corridor. A portion of the Project will utilize a split alignment.

This Project is split into two phases. Phase 1 includes the two bridges and some earthwork and began in April 2019 with a substantial completion date of September 2019. Phase 2 includes the remaining roadway expansion and is expected to be substantially completed by June 30, 2020.

This is a City of Lone Tree Project – please visit Road Projects in the City of Lone Tree


South I-25 Gap Construction Impacts – Summer 2019

Watch for changing traffic patterns. Throughout the work zone, speed limits will be a maximum 65 mph.  Pay attention! 

Upcoming construction impacts summer 2019 for I-25 South Gap Project
Click on the image to view a map of upcoming construction impacts for Summer 2019.
  1. June 2019.(various crossover configurations to last through 2020) – Greenland Interchange Crossover
    Crews will completely rebuild this one-lane box culvert into a two-lane interchange and construct a new wildlife crossing just to the north of the interchange. As crews build this new bridge in halves, all I-25 traffic will be shifted to one side or the other. Periodic ramp closures will be necessary to reach this configuration.
  2. June 2019 (new alignment will last throughout 2019) – Traffic Shift Between Castle Rock and Larkspur
    So far, crews have been working in the median of I-25. This summer, work will shift to the outside.   Two travel lanes will remain open in both directions during peak travel times.  Watch for traffic shifts and overnight lane closures. Lanes will continue to be tight, and shoulder space will vary.
  3. June – July 2019  – Sky View Lane Ramp Closures and Traffic Shift – Major drainage improvements
    The on-ramp from Sky View Lane (Tomah Road) to northbound I-25 will be temporarily closed. The East Frontage Road will also need to be closed, though not at the same time as the on-ramp. Traffic will be shifted, so both northbound and southbound traffic will ride head-to-head on the southbound side of I-25, separated by concrete barrier.
  4. July 2019 – County Line Ramps near Monument – Rebuilding ramps and drainage improvements
    Crews will close the northbound on and southbound off ramps for up to 10 days at a time. Detours will maintain local access.
  5. Flagging is underway (full closures slated to start in June 2019) – Frontage Road Work Near Castle Rock – Drainage improvements
    Daily one-way flagging on both frontage roads; overnight flagging on both frontage roads; long-term closures of sections of both frontage roads. However, both frontage roads will not be closed at the same time.
