96th St / Storage Tek Drive Underpass Trail Improvement
This project is to design and construct improvements to the existing underpass structure at Storage Tek Drive/Northwest Parkway on the Broomfield Trail RT-1 and is part of the regional Rock Creek Trail. The improvements will provide for lighting, improved drainage, and paved access from the west side of the existing box culvert to the street level above.
This project will provide a safe pedestrian and bike connection beneath 96th Street/Northwest Parkway.
A construction agreement was presented to City Council on May 8th. The project environmental scientist has monitored the raptor's nest and there is not a nesting bird. If that continues, the project can start as early as June 2018.
An underpass structure was constructed under 96th Street/Storage Tek Drive in the mid-1990's in anticipation of a future trail. The underpass would be part of the RT1 trail segment.
