Information and graphic provided by the City of Castle Pines
The City of Castle Pines is applying for a grant to fund engineering and preliminary design for a bike/pedestrian bridge over I-25 adjacent to Castle Pines Parkway. The Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) is currently collecting public input.
This bridge is part of the City Council’s adopted Trails Master Plan and is being pursued in the service of creating a safer option to cross I-25 by separating automotive traffic and pedestrian lanes and improving connectivity.
From Castle Rock to Ridgegate Parkway, there are no other grade-separated bicycle/pedestrian connections across I-25 aside from the narrow, attached sidewalks at the Castle Pines Parkway interchange bridge. This improvement will enhance the north and south regional trail connections east and west of I-25 as well, providing a safe dedicated bridge over I-25. The bridge can help support and serve regional trails connecting Coyote Ridge Park along Monarch Boulevard in the northwest limits of Castle Pines to Gemstone Park along Crowfoot Valley Road in Castle Rock, as well as a regional bike connection north of Castle Pines Parkway along Havana Street, east of I-25.
The City is applying to DRCOG for a grant for funding of this project. DRCOG is currently collecting public input on all of the various projects that have applied for funding through this grant process.
