Roadway and Drainage Improvements

Location: Arapahoe County, Colo.

Client: City of Northglenn

Burns & McDonnell is preparing design and construction documents for improvements to Beeler Street, Colorado Avenue, Mexico Avenue and Iowa Avenue in Arapahoe County, Colo. The proposed improvements will include upgrading and widening approximately 1.2 miles of aggregate-surfaced and asphalt-surfaced roadways to paved roadways with curb and gutter, sidewalk and an enclosed drainage system. Design of the enclosed drainage system near an Xcel power substation will require additional utility coordination.

  • Field surveys
  • Geotechnical investigations
  • Environmental clearances
  • Pavement signing and marking plans
  • Utility locates & coordination
  • Right-of-way plats and easements
  • Phasing and traffic control plans
  • Design and contract documents for all proposed facilities
  • Hydraulic analyses and design

The project corridor is developed with single-family and multi-family residential housing. Drainage analysis includes the verification of existing drainage systems, site drainage plans and a master drainage plan. The hydraulic design will include the conversion of three retention ponds to detention ponds.
