Arapahoe Road Widening Project

Paving operations will begin in the middle lanes of Arapahoe Road between Waco Street and Himalaya Way August 30. In the meantime, crews will be working to open and maintain the intersections of Chapparal Cir West/Piney Creek Cir and Espana/Euclid to allow for left turns. Occasional closures should still be expected as work occurs in the intersections. We will provide updates again if the schedule changes significantly.

The sidewalk on the north side of Arapahoe will be complete the first week of September. We need to complete the intersection at Himalaya and Arapahoe before finalizing the sidewalk. 

We know this work is inconvenient but have accelerated the schedule to get the paving completed sooner than originally planned. Thank you for your patience throughout this project. We are doing our best to complete the project by year's end.

Beginning Monday, August 8, a new traffic alignment will be implemented along the Arapahoe Road Widening Project which will shift all lanes to the outside (north and south) to allow construction in the central lanes. This phase of construction will result in incremental closures intersections as well as left-turns off of Arapahoe Road as well as in and out of neighborhoods.

View the detour routes associated with this phase of construction.

As the work progresses, the City will distribute notice of the anticipated closures for each intersection and which detours residents should use. Please drive with care as school starts next week. This accelerated roadway work is necessary to make up for weather delays earlier in the year, and complete the project as soon as possible. U-turns are not permitted within the project limits, at S Waco Street, the Grandview High School entrance, or S Liverpool Street."​​
