One of the latest projects for Arapahoe County and the Colorado
Department of Transportation is a planned trail underpass at Iliff
Avenue and the High Line Canal Trail in unincorporated Arapahoe
Currently, trail pedestrians and cyclists are required to cross
four lanes of traffic on Iliff Avenue.
“Once complete, this project creates a much safer crossing for
trail users that also minimizes impacts to vehicle traffic,” said
County Commissioner Pat Noonan of Aurora.
The crossing will extend under Iliff Avenue on the west side of
the High Line Canal and connect segments of existing trail systems
on either side of Iliff.
The trail connection is a high priority within Arapahoe County’s
Open Space Master Plan, which calls for an interconnected system of
parks and trails throughout the county.
During the four-month construction timeframe, Iliff Avenue will
be restricted to one lane in each direction for approximately two
months. Impacts to traffic in the area will be significant. A trail
detour will be provided during construction.
The project is being managed by Arapahoe County Public Works and
Development and is funded by Arapahoe County Open Space and the
Federal Highway Administration.
