The County is partnering with the City of Lone Tree and CDOT to build a pedestrian/bicycle bridge that will carry the C-470 multi-modal trail over Acres Green Drive. The project is being advanced to improve safety and mobility and reduce congestion and traffic delays on Acres Green Drive. The final design is currently underway, with no significant utility relocations or ROW acquisition anticipated.
The total project is estimated to cost $4 million to construct. The City of Lone Tree was successful in being selected to receive $2 million for construction in federal funds through the DRCOG project selection process, and the remaining construction costs are to be shared by Douglas County ($1 million) and the City of Lone Tree ($1million). Additionally, the County agreed to contribute $225,000 to Lone Tree to advance a portion (50%) of the final design costs, which got underway in 2021 and was completed in the fall of 2022.
