Quincy/Gun Club project to begin final phase

Heads up motorists. The final phase of the Quincy Ave./Gun Club Road intersection improvement project will kick into gear in the coming days.

The project, which started in late 2019, is designed to alleviate congestion at this major intersection near E-470. Construction crews will start to gather at the work site on Monday, April 19. Concrete work will start in the following days as the project is set for completion in June. “The Quincy/Gun Club intersection is near completion,” said James Katzer, Arapahoe County Transportation Division manager. “The County’s first partial continuous flow intersection will be used to address one of the citizens top priorities, congestion.”

A partial continuous flow intersection (PCFI) is a modern and efficient approach to reducing delays and travel time in the area. The major change to this intersection is for motorists traveling north and southbound on Gun Club Road. Those traveling north who want to turn west toward E-470 will be directed to use new left turn lanes well before the intersection. These new lanes will allow northbound motorists to make the left earlier and bypass the intersection before entering E-470. Similarly, motorists traveling south on Gun Club Road who want to turn east onto Quincy Avenue will be directed to new left turn lanes that will allow them to skip the intersection.

When complete, this new intersection will help ease congestion in a fast-growing area. “The intersection will increase access to events held at the County Fairgrounds and the Aurora Reservoir, E-470, surrounding businesses and the growing regional trail system,” Katzer said.

This $12.8 million project, which is being oversaw by Alfred Benesch & Company, is a partnership with Arapahoe County Open Spaces, the City of Aurora, Southeast Metro Stormwater Authority, and federal highway funds. Monday’s work marks the end of a winter shutdown that started late last year. Visit www.arapahoegov.com/QuincyGunclub for more project information.
