December 2013 - City staff is working with the design consultant team, lead by Short Elliott Hendrickson, Inc. (SEH), to address the numerous challenges and potential impacts of the remaining Phase III portion of the corridor. The design work includes a number of elements needed to complete the vision for a consistent and enhanced Cherry Creek South Drive corridor, including concrete pavement, curb, gutter and sidewalk, landscaping and irrigation, utilities, street lighting (referred to as base project improvements), amenities and a new signalized intersection at the Cherry Creek South Drive and Alameda Intersection.
The project team met with representatives from adjacent properties to discuss the project and received valuable input from these stakeholders. This input and information developed through numerous site visits and technical analysis is being used to complete a design solution that complements Phases I and II and balances the various needs in the corridor. The design work will continue through Spring 2014.
Currently there is no construction funding identified for the project. However, completing the Phase III design at the 90% level will position the project to pursue funding for implementation. The 90% level of design and cost estimating will focus on the base project improvements within the section needed to complete a consistent corridor that aligns with improvements from the Phase I and Phase II projects. Design elements and amenities outside the footprint of the base project improvements and still within the City’s right-of-way will be developed after construction funding has been identified and the project is ready to move into implementation.
