A lot is going on in Lone Tree. Several infrastructural projects are in the works to improve the city. A quick overview:
Starting in the fall, the light rail will be extended with three additional stations by 2.3 miles. This is a major project, costing $220 million which will partly be funded my Lone Tree, Douglas County, Coventry Development and Denver South TMA. The construction should be finished by fall 2018.
I-25 will increase its lanes from six to 8, starting in November 2015. Merge Lanes and signage is also supposed to be improved.
One express toll lane will be added to C-470 in each direction starting in 2016 to make travel quicker.
RidgeGate Parkway will be widened by adding two additional lanes, two-way bicycle lanes, and a multi-use trail. This $22 million project will go from Havana Street to the city limits and is expected to be started by 2019. Potential funding partners are Lone Tree, DRCOG, Douglas County, Rampart Range metropolitan District and Denver South TMA.
One more project will be undertaken by the City of Lone Tree. Walk and Wheel is an initiative to make the city more pedestrian friendly. Adding the Lincoln Avenue Pedestrian Bridge, Bike Lanes on Yosemite Street and RidgeGate Parkway should definitely support this endeavor.
