Road Construction Update (Oct. 31 – Nov. 6, 2016)

October 31-November 6, 2016

Working jointly with Douglas County, Sterling Ranch is executing significant improvements to bring surrounding roads up to current code standards. Sterling Ranch is committed to improving the safety and mobility of surrounding roads and is developing an internal road network to keep drivers, bikers and pedestrians safe.

We will continue to provide regular updates to keep you informed and minimize any inconvenience. Thank you in advance for exercising caution while construction crews work on these improvements.

Titan Road Improvements

Expect intermittent, single-lane closures during the day on Titan Road. There will be a 24-hour, single-lane closure over the weekend of November 4-6. This process is necessary to complete the new road alignment and transition traffic.

Wadsworth & Waterton Intersection Improvement

There are no planned lane closures for the week of October 31 – November 6. Waterton Road commuters may be subject to alternating one lane traffic on Saturday, November 5, from 7 am and 5 pm. Waterton Road traffic now travels on the temporary detour road. This traffic configuration will be in place for several months. Motorists are encouraged to use caution and slower speeds when traveling through the work zone.

This is a Jefferson County project – for any questions, please email wadsworth_waterton@workzone.info or call 303-217-1000.

New Online Tool to Navigate Traffic in Douglas County

You can now access NearMeDC, a free online tool to help you navigate cone zone traffic congestion throughout Douglas County. The tool allows you to identify one or more areas within the county through which you travel, subscribe to and then receive a Cone Zone notification specific to the areas you’ve chosen. When a cone zone occurs in your area of interest, a notification – via email or text – is delivered. Douglas County developed the online tool to help those who travel within the county become aware of, plan for and navigate around county cone zones – before they begin their journey to work, school or play. The county also recently announced its two-way data-sharing partnership with Waze, the free, real-time navigation app.

A Smart, Sustainable Vision

Sterling Ranch has taken a unique, forward-thinking approach to creating a master-planned community with stewardship at the forefront. The development team has had the opportunity to share this transformative vision and talk about its disciplined implementation with audiences from a variety of relevant industries.

Most recently, Chairman Harold Smethills was asked to speak about Sterling Ranch at the American Bar Association’s Fall Conference for the Section of Environmental Energy & Resources Law. He shared the legal and policy considerations that went into establishing Sterling Ranch as the state’s first pilot project for rainwater harvesting, and how this sustainability initiative is further supported by the water-wise landscape guidelines that have been developed in partnership with Denver Botanic Gardens.

Chief Technology Officer Brock Smethills also spoke about empowering Sterling Ranch residents to be stewards within their own homes by using technologies that enhance the nature of their day. He shared with members of the Society for Marketing Professional Services about Smart Cities and how Sterling Ranch is delivering the promise of tomorrow with intelligent infrastructure today. Connected by a fiber-optic network, the infrastructure at Sterling Ranch allows residents to monitor their water and energy usage – and save money on their utility bills.

The fiber-optic network provides the community with the flexibility and connectivity to adapt to future technologies, and fiber runs to every home for homeowners to access 1 gig Internet service. These offerings provide every opportunity to stay connected digitally, while the expansive open space and 30 miles of internal trails deliver the perfect setting to connect with the community’s natural surroundings.

These are just a few of the environmentally conscious innovations reflective of Sterling Ranch’s commitment to stewardship, providing a road map for future, sustainable development.
