New Traffic Signal on Crooked Stick Trail in Ridgegate

A new traffic signal is being installed at the intersection of Crooked Stick Trail and RidgeGate Parkway. This signal will provide a safer crossing area for bicyclists and pedestrians. The intersection has had stop signs controlling traffic until now. 

During the week of July 20th, the mast arms and signal heads will be installed. The signal heads will be covered as the contractor continues work on the wiring for the signals. 

Once the wiring is complete, the signal will turn on and flash for 48 hours. This is so residents can get used to the new signal being on. 

After 48 hours, the signal will function normally. Also, the pavement for the crosswalks will be installed at that time.

During the next phase, Crooked Stick Trail will be milled and overlaid from RidgeGate Parkway to 140-feet south of Bluffmont Drive. There will be a detour in place during the performance of this work. There will be no access restrictions to Bluffs Regional Park during this time.

Congratulations Fara and Faye!

Congratulations to Fara and Faye on the purchase of their new home in #LoneTree Colorado! 

Working with Garland Thurman, they secured their new home even amid the Coronavirus craziness by taking extra safety precautions and handling most of the transaction virtually. Masks were worn at the closing but we snapped a quick happy photo while remaining socially distanced. 

We have a plan put together to work within the guidelines set by the State. In this case, our clients viewed several properties virtually, then in-person showings of those at the top of the list while using all the safety precautions, and then using Garland's professional skills to negotiate and close on the PERFECT home!

We are proud of our service to our Buyers and Sellers and look forward to maintaining a strong relationship after the sale process.

Lone Tree Arts Center Virtual Arts

On Wednesday, June 10th at 1:30pm, Live with Colcannon will be performing via a professionally produced livestream. This five member group is known for their Irish music which is traditional with a touch of chamber music and music hall.

For more information on this event and to purchase tickets, please follow this link:


Later in the month, on June 24th, vocalist Sheryl Renee and pianist Tom Sandquist will be performing via professionally produced livestream. Sheryl will be performing some of the greatest songs written over the last century, mixed with inspirational messages of hope. 

For more information on this event and to purchase tickets, please follow this link:

Like all businesses in the state of Colorado, the Lone Tree Arts Center is bound by the rules in place limiting public gatherings to 10 people or less as well as the order that theaters and music venues remain closed. The Lone Tree Arts Center plays an important role in the Lone Tree and Ridgegate communities. Ticket purchase and charitable gifts continue to support the Lone Tree Arts Center. A late summer or early fall opening is hopeful.

Looking forward, a few months of shows will be announced at a time so as to avoid rescheduling, if necessary.
