The 145th Corridor

By Christine Southwick

The 145th Street Multimodal Corridor Study Open House, Sept 30 hosted over 150 interested citizens.

Feelings ran high among those people on both sides of 145th whose properties are likely to be affected. The city officials repeatedly stressed that the study is still in the one-year study phase.

This phase will be followed by an Environmental Review phase of 1-2 years; Preliminary design phase of 1 year, Right of Way/Property Acquisition and Final Design phase of 1-2 years; with actual construction taking 2+ years.

There are four basic options that were presented. Option one requires no action (60 foot right-of-way) all the way to Option 4 (101 foot right-of-way), which includes sidewalks and in some cases bike lanes. A hybrid of preferred parts of the four options is also possible.

Attendees were encouraged to indicate their level of priorities for each of the five sections (contexts) of the corridor. The five contexts are: 3rd NW to Greenwood; Greenwood to Aurora; Aurora to I-5;  the I-5 interchange; and I-5 to Lake City Way.

The next open house is tentatively scheduled for January, after which the study team will make a recommendation to the City Council.

Don't worry, folks! It's "just a study". Now close your eyes while the City plows your neighborhoods, just like they did to 185th... and brace yourself 145th subarea, you're next!
