ABOUT THE PROJECT

The South Platte Working Group is studying ways to improve bicycle and pedestrian connections to the South Platte. The study kicked off in July 2018 and will focus on seven locations where access to the South Platte is difficult today, including:

  • Dartmouth

  • Hampden

  • Oxford

  • Federal

  • Belleview

  • Bowles

  • Mineral

Public involvement activities were conducted in August and September to help the project team learn from you – the community – about your local needs and vision for accessing the South Platte. Additional public engagement activities will be held in January 2019.

The project team will conduct public outreach and a technical evaluation to identify improvements for accessing the South Platte. A feasibility report will be drafted that includes conceptual level design and planning level cost estimates for the recommended improvements. No funding has been identified for the construction of the improvements, but part of the study effort is to identify potential funding sources and develop a strategy for constructing the projects over time as funding becomes available.

Project partners include:

  • South Platte Working Group

  • Arapahoe County

  • City of Englewood

  • City of Littleton

  • City of Sheridan

  • South Suburban Park & Recreation District

The project is funded by Arapahoe County through the Arapahoe County Open Space Sales & Use Tax.
