General Statement of Work:  The Project consists of widening 56th Avenue from Peoria Street to Peña Boulevard to a four-lane typical section while establishing the footprint for an ultimate six-lane typical section. The Project also includes constructing a multi-use path along the north side of 56th Avenue, including connections to the neighborhood bike lanes and the trail system at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. The four-lane roadway widening of 56th Avenue should be designed to minimize rework when the six-lane section is constructed in the future. Preparing for the ultimate six-lane section includes locating the median, curb and gutter, multi-use path, drainage, signage, lighting, signals, utilities, and other elements in their ultimate locations.
