February 6-12, 2017
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
A short duration single lane closure is expected on Monday, February 6, or Tuesday, February 7, between 8:30a-3:30p in order to repair potholes in the old pavement. Any additional updates will be posted as they become available.
Wadsworth & Waterton Intersection Improvement
A new traffic pattern is now in place. With the work zone in the center of the road (between traffic lanes), please use caution and watch for construction vehicles entering and exiting the work zone.
The Wadsworth/Waterton traffic switch planned for this weekend (Feb 4th or 5th) has been postponed. Cold weather and icy conditions last week delayed asphalt paving, which is required before the traffic switch. An update will be provided during the week. Please check the project website (jeffco.us/transportation-and-engineering/projects/wadsworth-and-waterton-road-intersection) for more information as it becomes available.
•Southbound Wadsworth Boulevard traffic headed to Waterton Road: use dedicated left-turn lane approximately 1,000 feet north of the intersection
•Southbound Wadsworth Boulevard traffic headed to Lockheed Martin: stay right
•All Waterton Rd. traffic onto Wadsworth Blvd. must turn right. The traffic from Waterton Rd. headed to Lockheed Martin plant shall use the temporary U-turn cross over on Wadsworth approximately ¼ mile north of the Wadsworth/Waterton Rd. intersection.
A single lane closure remains for Southbound Wadsworth. This lane configuration will be in place for several months. By performing this work now, crews will be able to construct most of Wadsworth Boulevard while Phase 1 work is completed. Phase 2 work, which constructed the east side of Wadsworth Boulevard, was accelerated and is nearing completion. All work is weather-dependent.
In order to construct the project, lane closures are necessary. Motorists should expect some peak period delay on all intersection approaches through spring 2017. The current traffic pattern will be in place through February. The speed limit on Wadsworth Boulevard has been reduced to 25 mph. Fines are double within the work zone.
This is a Jefferson County project – for any questions, please email email@example.com or call 303-217-1000. Also, visit the project website (jeffco.us/transportation-and-engineering/projects/wadsworth-and-waterton-road-intersection) for more information and graphics of the new configuration.
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.
