City to Move Ahead With Arapahoe Road Widening Project
According to the city’s website, after years of increased congestion, lack of left turn lanes and annoying bottlenecks the city has had enough and is moving forward with the project to widen the road. Here’s how the city describes the project:
“The primary goal of this long awaited project is to improve safety and mobility by reconstructing and widening Arapahoe Road from Waco Street to Himalaya Way. This stretch of Arapahoe Road is currently a two-lane roadway designed to handle 20,000 vehicles per day, but actually handles about 23,900 vehicles per day with significant peak hour volumes. Traffic along this busy segment of Arapahoe Road is anticipated to further increase in the coming years. The City of Centennial and its project partners are collaborating on this project that will increase capacity and improve safety and mobility through this segment of the corridor.”
A public forum for residents, business owners and commuters will be held from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 4 at Grandview High School. For more information or to keep tabs on the project, go to arapahoeroad.com. A construction start date has not been announced.
