The Jefferson Parkway is envisioned to nearly complete the original beltway concept from the 1960s. Its planning started in the early 2000s and gained momentum with the formation of the JPPHA in 2008.
Much of the progress of making the proposed Jefferson Parkway a reality has happened in the past few years:
• 2017 — The JPPHA hosts several community open house meetings for the public to learn more about the Jefferson Parkway and the results of various studies conducted. These studies included economic and environmental impact studies, feasibility and traffic and revenue studies, among others.
• 2018 — The solicitation process to identify a partner responsible for financing, designing, building, operating and maintaining the parkway begins. By December, five responses were received through the qualifications process, and of them, three were selected as finalists.
• 2019 — All right of way land needed to construct the parkway is now owned by either the JPPHA or its member governments. The JPPHA is awaiting additional funds from Broomfield to proceed with the RFP process to choose the firm to design, build, operate and maintain the parkway. Ground could break as early as 2020.
Following a qualifications process, the JPPHA board of directors chose three teams from five submissions to proceed to the request for proposal phase.
“Each team brings substantial financial capacity, proven engineering expertise, significant construction experience and knowledgeable operations and maintenance personnel that will be needed in a regional infrastructure project of this size,” states a press release from the JPPHA.
All three of the teams have experience with infrastructure projects in Colorado — whether it be construction, design or financing — through one or more of the groups’ team member companies. Some of these projects include I-70 in a number of locations and I-25; as well as the Northwest Parkway and E-470.
Principals of the team: Kiewit, a transportation contractor; DIF, an independent infrastructure fund; and Northleaf Capital, an investment team.
“We are enthusiastic to complete what we started over 20 years ago … JBCP is excited at the prospect of delivering the Jefferson Parkway project — the long-awaited segment of beltway that will bring unsurpassed connectivity to metro Denver.”
Principals of the team: ACS, an international construction and infrastructure development company; Hochtief, a construction group; Flatiron, an infrastructure contractor; and WSP, a consultant company.
“JEFFEX will deliver the final segment of the Beltway so that neighborhoods are better connected, drivers experience shorter and more reliable journey times and improved road safety is guaranteed.”
Principals of the team: Shikun & Binui, an infrastructure and real estate company; AECOM Energy & Construction, a construction and engineering company; John Laing, an infrastructure investment, development and operations company.
“The CFRC team is committed to the achievement of this vision and the project goals … We stand ready, committed, experienced and energized to make Jefferson Parkway a reality.”
