City of Aurora 6th Avenue Parkway Extension Environmental Assessment

The City of Aurora—in consultation with the Federal Highway Administration and the Colorado Department of Transportation—is proposing to construct the 6th Avenue Parkway Extension along a new roadway alignment between Colorado Highway (CO) 30 and the 6th Avenue Parkway/E-470 Tollway interchange.

The proposed sction is in the northeastern portion of Aurora, and falls partially within Aurora and partially within unincorporated Arapahoe County. The proposed action would close an almost two-mile gap in the major arterial street system, and would include a crossing of Sand Creek and its associated floodplain.

The project has been identified in previous planning studies dating back as early as 1986, and has been identified as a priority project by the Aurora City Council.
