South Suburban is dedicated to the improvement of its facilities, parks and trails. Projects are listed by earliest start date. Please check back periodically for new projects.

Construction

Greenwood to Denver Terminal Transmission Project
Project Description: Xcel Energy—Colorado proposes to rebuild and reconductor approximately 15.4 miles of existing 115 kilovolt (kV) transmission facilities to operate at 230 kV. The plan is to rebuild and/or reconductor facilities within existing right-of-way and easements from Xcel Energy’s Greenwood Substation to its Denver Terminal Substation. The project includes modifications to the existing Greenwood, Arapahoe and Denver Terminal Substations to accommodate the new 230 kV lines. The transmission line project crosses six municipalities: Centennial, Greenwood Village, Littleton, Englewood, Sheridan and Denver.

Big Dry Creek Trail Crossing at East Easter Avenue/Cherry Knolls Park
Project Description:
South Suburban, Southeast Metro Stormwater Authority (SEMSWA), and City of Centennial are jointly funding improvements to this trail crossing. The existing underpass at Easter Avenue will be permanently closed to increase flood capacity through the box culvert, removing structures from the 100-year floodplain. A signalized pedestrian/bicylce crossing at Easter Avenue will be installed. Easter Avenue serves a temporary trail detour, see Map.
Anticipated Construction Dates: November 2020 - May 2021

Trail Underpass at Palos Verdes Park
Project Description:
South Suburban, City of Greenwood Village, and City of Centennial are jointly funding improvements to the trail underpass at Orchard Avenue. The trail surface will be lowered to provide more clearance, and a drop structure will be constructed. A portion of Palos Verdes Park is being used for construction staging. The underpass is closed during construction. A temporary on-street detour is in place, and signage is provided on site.
Anticipated Construction Dates: November 2020 - April 2021
