Parker Road Corridor Study
Arapahoe County in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, Colorado Department of Transportation, City of Aurora
and Douglas County undertook a Corridor Study for Parker Road (State Highway 83) between Hampden Avenue and E470. The objective
in pursuing the study was to develop interim and long term recommended improvements for the corridor. The Parker Road Corridor
Study, which began August 10, 2007, is a study to examine alternatives for improving mobility, accessibility and safety while
balancing local community needs along Parker Road.
The study considered all modes of transportation in this travel corridor, including mass transit, pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Throughout
this study, the County coordinated closely with the local entities within and adjacent to the corridor. To foster this ongoing
communication, we formed various committees. These committees included an Executive, Technical Advisory Committees and work
groups with various community interest groups (residential, business, property owners, public safety/emergency service providers,
bike/ped). The intent was to have elected officials or designated senior staff from each of the communities and oversight
agencies on the EC. The TAC included staff from each of the affected jurisdictions and support agencies. Working groups included
those individuals or organizations that represented a particular community interest. more >>
