Arapahoe and Jordan intersection reconstruction completed in just 15 days through accelerated schedule

September 3, 2014 - Metro Denver Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - CENTENNIAL—The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Hamon Contractors completed major elements of an aggressively scheduled full intersection reconstruction at Arapahoe Road (SH 88) and Jordan Road.

This project replaced existing asphalt pavement with a more durable concrete intersection that is expected to last three times as long and allowed for the addition of a double left turn from westbound Arapahoe Road onto southbound Jordan Road.

A project of this nature typically takes four months to complete, but CDOT accelerated work and completed the project in just 15 days. Restrictions to traffic movement were used to increase the work area and speed the reconstruction. The restrictions included no left turns and no through traffic on Jordan, both of which caused motorists to detour from their usual routes.

“We knew that this accelerated project would have an impact on motorists, the community and local businesses, and we want to thank everyone for their patience during our work,” said Tony DeVito, CDOT Regional Transportation Director. “We’d like to implement more accelerated projects in the future and think that this was a good model in which to base future planning decisions.”

The coming weeks will see completion of work at this intersection including new islands, improved pedestrian and ADA compliance features, and new traffic signal poles.

CDOT is asking motorists who traveled through this area during the 15-day construction phase, from July 26 through Aug. 9, to provide feedback on their experience via a six question survey located at
