ARAPAHOE COUNTY — Arapahoe County Public Works, along with contractor partner Concrete Express Inc., has begun existing roadway and sidewalk removals, earthwork and underground testing outside the active lanes as part of the Iliff Avenue Corridor Improvement Project between South Parker Road (CO 83) and Quebec Street.

To remove the existing median to open the roadway for future widening, crews will conduct daytime single lane closures Monday, September 19 through Friday, September 24.

Planned improvements to Iliff Avenue include: four-lane corridor with acceleration and deceleration lanes, intersection safety modifications, bike lane and additional ADA-compliant sidewalk installations, transit stop enhancements, multi-use path/crosswalk improvements, traffic signal optimization with signal detection/ video monitoring and equipment upgrades.
