With your help, the South Platte Connections Study is setting the stage for better bicycle and pedestrian connections to the South Platte!


Improving bicycle & pedestrian connections to the south platte river and mary carter greenway trail



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/September 2018 to help the project team learn from you – the community – about your local needs and vision for accessing the South Platte. Additional public meetings were held in January 2019 to present recommendations to the public and gather input on project priorities.

A feasibility report has been developed 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 was to identify potential funding sources and develop a strategy for constructions 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.
