If you’ve traveled along Kipling
Parkway, you may have noticed construction
activity along the west side of this roadway between W.
51st Place and W. 58th
Avenue. The Kipling Parkway Trail construction has
been underway since March of this year with completion of the project slated
for the end of October, 2011.
Last spring, City Council awarded a contract to Concrete
Express, Inc. for the construction of Kipling Parkway Trail which is located on
the west side of Kipling Parkway from W. 58th Avenue to just south of the
Burlington Northern Railroad bridge.
Construction includes excavation of the existing slopes of
Kipling, an approximately 10- foot-wide concrete trail, a block retaining wall,
native seeding and bike racks at the southwest corner of W.
58th Avenue and Kipling
This concrete trail will complete a missing link between the
Arvada Ridge commercial development surrounding the Super Target center and W.
58th Avenue and will serve as an important
bike/pedestrian connection for the Van Bibber Creek trail system and the future
Arvada Ridge rail station as part of the FasTracks program.
Nearly 50% of the $525,000 project is funded by a Federal
grant with the remaining amount funded by the City of Arvada’s
Capital Improvement Program.
