Partners celebrate groundbreaking of final phase of Waterton Road extension

Partnership agreement with Sterling Ranch accelerated creation of Rampart Range Road to Moore Road connection

Posted on September 7, 2021 2021Transportation


Good news. Construction is officially underway to provide an additional east-west route and increased roadway capacity to and from Northwest Douglas County communities.

The Board of Douglas County Commissioners gathered with members of the Sterling Ranch Community Authority Board (CAB) and the Sterling Ranch Development Company on Sept. 2, 2021, to officially celebrate the groundbreaking for Phase 2 of the Waterton Road extension project.

This extension of Waterton Road from Rampart Range Road to Moore Road will complete the connection to US Highway 85. The Sterling Ranch CAB and Sterling Ranch Development Company are contributing the full anticipated construction costs of $16.1 million with Douglas County providing construction management for the project.

The County’s 2040 Transportation Master Plan identifies the need for this project to give those in Roxborough Village, Chatfield Farms, Roxborough Downs, River Canyon and Sterling Ranch an alternative to Titan Road as they travel east. Phase 1 of the project, the construction of a 2.8-mile, two-lane roadway between Airport Road and Moore Road, was completed in August 2020.

This project was accelerated thanks to an August 2020 partnership agreement between the County and Sterling Ranch that maximized cost efficiencies and reduced the time needed to complete the extension.

The Waterton Road Phase-2 extension is expected to be complete in the fall of 2022.
