Proposed Action Alternative

The Proposed Action

  • Adds a third 11-foot lane in both directions with a raised center median from 35th Avenue to I-70
  • Reconfigures intersections
  • Consolidates access points and driveways
  • Includes continuous sidewalks on the west and a multiuse path on the east – both separated from the roadway by an amenity zone (buffer)

A Continuous Flow Intersection (CFI) design was selected for both 38th and 44th Avenues to help reduce congestion while serving drivers, cyclists, pedestrians, and transit. CFIs are innovative intersection designs that are increasingly being used around the country. In Colorado they can be found in Durango, and Loveland, and will soon be built in both Douglas and Arapahoe counties.
