County partners with Sterling Ranch to accelerate construction of Waterton Road

Extension from Rampart Range Road to Moore Road will improve access to US 85 from northwest portions of the County

Posted on August 26, 2020 2020Breaking NewsTransportation


Residents of northwest Douglas County will soon have an additional east-west route to their communities thanks to the Aug. 25, 2020 approval of the Amended and Restated Waterton Boulevard Infrastructure Development Agreement.

This agreement, along with the reallocation of $13 million by the Board, allows the County to partner with the Sterling Ranch Community Authority Board and the Sterling Ranch Development Company to maximize cost efficiencies and reduce the time to complete the extension of Waterton Road from Rampart Range road to the recently opened Southern Connector.

Through the partnership, the County will provide a portion of the initial project funding, and project management of the completion of Waterton Road with Sterling Ranch completing some predevelopment activities and repaying County costs incurred to complete Waterton Road.

“This is an important project, not only for Sterling Ranch but for the entire Northwest portion of the County,” commented, Roger Partridge, Board Chair and County Commissioner, “I am pleased the County was able to negotiate this agreement to benefit our residents who will now experience less traffic, less congestion and less travel time when they choose to travel through that area.”

The need for the extension of Waterton Road to give those in Roxborough Village, Chatfield Farms, Roxborough Downs, River Canyon and Sterling Ranch an alternative to Titan Road as they travel to and from US Highway 85 is identified in the County’s 2040 Transportation Master Plan.

The Waterton Phase-2 Extension project is currently in design, with construction estimated to begin in the spring of 2021.
