County Line Road Improvements completed on time and under budget

On Nov. 1, Lone Tree Mayor Jackie Millet was joined by representatives from neighboring municipalities at Seasons 52 in Lone Tree to celebrate the major improvements made to the area near Park Meadows Retail Resort thanks to their collaborative efforts.

“When you exist at the corner of I-25 and C-470, you can’t help but spend a lot of time and energy looking at traffic and transportation so it’s exciting to be here to celebrate another transportation project,” said Millet.  “This was a very much needed improvement, and we have a lot of people to thank.”

This project, which was completed on Oct. 19, was possible thanks to the support of Lone Tree’s partners: Douglas County, City of Centennial, Denver South Transportation Management Association and Park Meadows Metropolitan District.  

“What we see at the County is no doubt the impact to the mall, one of the main economic drivers in the state,” said Douglas County Commissioner Roger Partridge.  “But we also see the impact to both Arapahoe County and Douglas County, making this a regional project.”

Road improvements included an additional northbound lane on Park Meadows Center Drive which splits into separate lanes for southbound and northbound I-25 and eastbound County Line Road, and a new left turn lane from westbound County Line Road into Park Meadows Retail Resort.  In addition, a westbound right turn lane was added from the I-25 southbound off ramp onto County Line Road.
