This October the Highlands Ranch Metro District will continue work replacing aging cedar wood fences located along parkways in Highlands Ranch. Much of the parkway fence is more than 20 years old and in need of replacement.
In 2007 the Metro District began its Parkway Fence Replacement Program to replace the aging, damaged parkway fence. The new fence is a composite fence comprised of recycled plastic and reclaimed wood that lasts longer than its wood counterpart and allows for a savings of 65 percent in maintenance costs.
This year’s fence replacement will occur in three phases beginning Oct. 8 and ending in April 2013, weather dependent. Potential lane and/or shoulder closures may occur with the construction.
Phase 1 – Begins Oct. 8
• South side of Highlands Ranch Pkwy from Burntwood Way east to Venneford Ranch Rd.
• North side of Highlands Ranch Pkwy. from S. Broadway east to Ridgeglenn Way.
Phase 2 – Begins on or before Dec. 1
• South side of Highlands Ranch Pkwy. from Venneford Ranch Rd. east to Montclair Dr.
• South side of Highlands Ranch Pkwy. from White Oak Ln. east to Wildcat Reserve Pkwy.
Phase 3 – Begins on or before Feb. 1
• North side of Highlands Ranch Pkwy. from Venneford Ranch Rd. east to Montclair Dr.
• North side of Highlands Ranch Pkwy. from White Oak Ln. east to Lucent Blvd.
The Metro District’s parkway fence replacement program is funded through its Major Repair Fund. This fund was created in 2004 to provide a long-term source of funding available to replace or repair maturing infrastructure such as fire stations, park facilities, and Metro District buildings. The most significant projected expense in the fund is for the fence replacement program.
