2021 Capital Improvement Projects Near Completion

The S. Newland Cir. and W. Alder Way projects are 100% complete. The final project on S. Depew St. is mostly complete with the exception of the culvert crossing which impacts the Massey Draw Trail.

Projects in Construction

S. Depew Street – This project will replace 1,900 feet of 8-inch CIP with 8-inch PVC in S. Depew Street between S. Platte Canyon Road and W. Canyon Trail. This project is located in the Columbine Hills subdivision and includes a culvert crossing near the Massey Draw Trail.

Construction on S. Depew St. is expected to resume in early October. Prior to construction on the culvert crossing, the district will put up “Construction Ahead” signs along the trail to warn trail users of the detour. The trail will likely be detoured from the Columbine Trail along W. Canyon Trail to S. Depew Street, and south on S. Depew St. until meeting up with the Massey Draw Trail just before W. Elmhurst Avenue in the Columbine Hills Park. Updates will be posted on Facebook and Nextdoor.

Completed Projects

S. Newland Circle – This project replaced 1,700 feet of 6-inch CIP with 6-inch PVC pipe in the S. Newland Circle loop off of W. Leawood Drive.

W. Alder Way – This project replaced 700 feet of 6-inch CIP with 6-inch PVC in W. Alder Way between S. Depew Street and W. Alder Avenue in the Columbine Hills subdivision.
