Sheridan Boulevard Multimodal Transportation Improvement Project

The Sheridan Boulevard Multimodal Transportation Improvement (MTI) Project will provide improvements for all modes of transportation in this highly-utilized corridor.

Project Scope

  • Widening Sheridan Boulevard to six lanes from Turnpike Drive to West 88th Place
  • A new U.S. 36 bikeway underpass connecting Downtown Westminster to the RTD U.S. 36 & Sheridan Station parking lot near Sheridan Boulevard and 88th Avenue
  • Installation of a pre-cast concrete arch for the bikeway underpass
  • New traffic signals at the West 88th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard intersection
  • Patterned concrete medians
  • Street and pedestrian lights
  • ADA ramps
  • Storm sewer drainage improvements

Multiple projects have created traffic impacts at Sheridan Boulevard and West 88th Avenue over the past few years. The Sheridan Boulevard MTI project will work to mitigate traffic impacts as much as possible.

The project is proposing to hire a third-party public information coordinator. This firm will be responsible for sending out consistent and accurate communications to the public early and often.

Timeline

Construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2021 and be completed in 2023.

Current Work

The project team has completed 90% of the design review with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT).

The project is utilizing a Construction Manager/General Contractor contract delivery method, which hires a contractor during the design phase.

The Construction Manager (CM) phase of the project is also known as pre-construction services. The goal of the CM phase is for the selected contractor, CEI, to work with the design team in order to reduce risk, thus reducing the price and duration of construction.

Funding

The city received $5.6 million in Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) and state grant funding and an additional $1 million in CDOT contribution for this project. The total project cost is estimated to be $10 million.
