Heritage Road at Apex Gulch

Consultation has concluded

Heritage Road at Apex Gulch project

The City of Golden has begun construction to replace the culvert beneath Heritage Road at Apex Gulch. The concrete box culvert that carries Apex under Heritage Rd is collapsing and must be replaced before it fails completely. To complete this work, road closures will be necessary.

Please download the map for location and detours. Construction began January 17, 2018 and should last 3 months, weather dependent.

  • When is the road opening

    Marcia asked over 1 year ago

    Road is tentatively scheduled to be opened on the 13th of April. 

  • With the closure of Heritage Road, there has been a large increase in the number of vehicles illegally turning left off of Colfax on to Zeta. There are currently several posted no left turn signs due to the lack of visibility around the curve in US 40. This seems like an accident waiting to happen at an already fairly dangerous intersection. What is the plan to prevent accidents during construction?

    I appreciate your inquiry. Safety of the traveling public is something the City takes very seriously and we are dedicated to keeping our roadways as safe as possible.  It is difficult to keep all drivers safe, especially drivers that are either unaware of traffic control devices or willfully ignore them. CDOT controls the ROW of Colfax and the traffic control devices within that ROW, including the no left turn at Zeta Street. That being said City staff will work with CDOT to see if there is anything that can be done to increase the conspicuity of the no left turn sign and hopefully increase awareness of drivers. 

    Thanks and regards, 

  • >Pedestrian access under Heritage @ Apex Gulch was not contemplated as a part of this project.< Got it. But how tall will the culvert be?

    Culvert will be 6' tall. 

  • Will the culvert be tall enough to allow people to pass under Heritage Road?
