Berkeley Gardens Neighborhood Improvements

Project Overview

The project area is located between Lowell Blvd and Federal Blvd (US 287), south of W 55th Place and north of the Adams County/Denver Boundary. The goal of the project is to provide neighborhood improvements that allow for roadway safety, mobility, pedestrian access facilities, and a better drainage system within the project limits. The existing drainage system needs to be repaired and upsized and will require upgrades to accommodate additional drainage flow. 
Improvements to the current roadways include the following:

  • Roadway widening
  • Pavement resurfacing
  • Curb and gutter installation
  • Sidewalk, curb, gutter, and landscape restoration
  • New trail accessibility from 53rd Avenue to Federal Boulevard
  • Water quality pond north of 55th Place near Clear Creek

Project Updates

The project is currently in the Right of Way (ROW) property acquisition phase, which is expected to be completed in late 2023. HDR, the consultant, is in the process of contacting the property owners to review the impacts to the properties and start the acquisition process. 

Surveyors will be on-site to temporarily mark (stake) the proposed acquisition area(s) and temporary construction easements. A real estate specialist will be in touch with impacted properties to explain the type of property easement being marked (staked).

Pink = proposed right of way (fee simple)
Blue = temporary easement
