U.S. 6 and Heritage Road intersection to be improved

Golden approves IGA to start design phase for the project

Posted

A busy Golden intersection that routinely sees traffic back-ups may be improved in the foreseeable future.

Golden City Council on Oct. 24 unanimously approved an Inter-Governmental Agreement (IGA) with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to access grant funding to begin the design phase of a project that will improve the U.S. 6 and Heritage Road intersection.

The grant, which is from the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), totals $3 million. Golden had to put up a 20% match totaling $600,000 —$450,000 are city of Golden funds and $150,000 came from Jefferson County.

Per the IGA, Golden will have complete control of the project, including the design, contracting and completion of the project.

It is expected that the city will send out Request For Proposals for design engineers and contractors later this year to start the design phase in early 2020.

Looking even further into the future, completion of the project will help with congestion as well as improve pedestrian and bike safety at the interchange. The Golden area should expect a number of a number of community meetings as the project moves forward.
