Study Area, Purpose & Goals


Arapahoe County, in conjunction with the City of Centennial and the Southeast Public Improvement Metropolitan District, is conducting the I-25/Dry Creek Road Interchange and Corridor Study. The study area includes Dry Creek Road from Yosemite Street to Easter Avenue, including the I-25 interchange. The purpose of the study is to consider short-term and long-term improvements to address peak period congestion along the corridor. Study goals are to develop a range of improvements to:
Study Area Map

  • Improve regional access
  • Improve mobility and reliability of the system
  • Improve congestion and safety
  • Optimize existing infrastructure
  • Leverage past area transportation investments
  • Consider all modes of transportation

Corridor Vision


Over the next 25 years and beyond, the I-25/Dry Creek Road interchange and corridor between Yosemite Street and Easter Avenue will serve as an important facility for both local and regional travel.  Dry Creek Road will provide an appropriate balance of improved traffic operations, multimodal mobility, and safety while maintaining local accessibility.  Planned improvements will minimize impacts to existing neighborhoods, maintain the community identity, and match the neighborhood/mixed use surroundings.

Stakeholder Involvement


Improvements to the Dry Creek Corridor will affect a wide spectrum of users and adjacent business and community interests, so stakeholder involvement is essential throughout the study process.

Public Involvement included two general public meetings, meetings with individuals and small groups, and presentations to groups such as homeowner’s associations and metropolitan districts.
 
Public Meeting #1 was held on February 18, 2016 at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. At this meeting, existing conditions and year 2040 travel forecasts of the corridor area were shown, and an overview of the types of alternatives that may be considered were provided. Documents that were covered at the meeting, including graphics and handouts, can be found on the Public Meetings page.

Public Meeting #2 was held on Thursday, July 28th, 2016 at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. At this meeting, results of two levels of alternatives screening and the draft study recommendations were presented. Documents that were covered at the meeting, including graphics and handouts, can be found on the Public Meetings page.
