County Line Road Improvements—Phase II

Last year, the City completed work on the project’s first phase (Phase I), which included adding a traffic signal at the north entrance to Park Meadows Retail Resort; adding another lane exiting out of Park Meadows Retail Resort; and adding dedicated right-turn lanes into both Park Meadows and Park Meadows Center Drive.

This year, Phase II includes:

  • Adding another westbound (left) turn lane from County Line into the PF Chang’s (north) entrance of Park Meadows.
  • Adding another northbound lane on Park Meadows Center Drive, with three signalized lanes for access to I-25 North, I-25 South and County Line Road east.
  • Removing the median at the I-25 southbound exit onto westbound County Line Road and adding another southbound lane to the I-25 southbound exit.
  • Milling and overlaying County Line Road from Chester Street to Park Meadows Center Drive.

Work is expected to be completed by November.

Milling is currently underway on Timberline Road and will continue Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. until Tuesday, July 17. At times, some entrances onto Timberline Road will be closed for up to 15 – 20 minutes, and residents will be redirected to another exit point. We ask that the residents please follow the directions of the flaggers so they don’t ruin their vehicles. Striping on Timberline will start shortly after milling is completed on the 17th. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Public Works at (303) 662-8112.

Small Cell Wireless Facilities Are Coming to Lone Tree

The increasing demand for wireless communications has led several wireless companies—including Sprint, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile—to consider installation of small cell wireless poles throughout Lone Tree.

Since the Colorado legislature passed a law in 2017 requiring municipalities to accommodate these poles in public rights of way, including in residential neighborhoods, it’s important to note that the City of Lone Tree cannot prohibit these installations.  However, the City has worked with many of the companies to design poles that will reduce their visual impact. Depending on its location, a new wireless facility may resemble a flag pole or street light, or it may be attached to an existing street light or traffic signal.

For more information, contact the City Manager’s Office or Public Works Department at 303-708-1818.
