Construction begins on Arapahoe Road Bridge over the Big Dry Creek

Published on January 31, 2022


Reconstruction of the bridge on Arapahoe Road, east of University Boulevard is scheduled to begin this week. This reconstruction project will:

  • Replace the existing bridge with a wider and taller structure
  • Improve pedestrian access over and around the bridge
  • Make improvements to the Big Dry Creek drainage and waterway system

Construction is scheduled to begin this week, and is expected to take about 18 months to complete. All work will be weather-dependent and will be subject to change.

Road closures are expected during the project. Prior to any closures an announcement will be sent to advise the public of alternate travel routes. People living in the nearby neighborhoods will still be able to get to their homes.
