Design and Construction

In order to precisely design for construction-specific detail, CDOT surveyed the entire project area this past fall and winter. With surveying efforts complete, final design work of improvements has begun and will continue through mid 2012.

The City of Lakewood recently received approval from the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) to fund construction of a segment of the project along Wadsworth Boulevard between 10th and 14th Avenues. Construction of this segment will begin once final design and right-of-way acquisitions between 10th and 14th Avenues are completed, likely toward the end of 2012.

CDOT has not yet identified construction funding for the remainder of the project, but is proceeding with design and some right-of-way acquisitions so the project can move quickly when construction funding is identified. Construction may take place in phases as funding becomes available.
