The RTC’s Steamboat Parkway Improvement Project is currently in the design phase. The project will improve Steamboat Parkway between Damonte Ranch Parkway and Veterans Parkway. The project scope includes roadway widening for additional travel lanes and turn pockets, reconfiguring traffic movements, and improving safety by modifying traffic signal operations and timing. The project plans also include lighting and safety improvements.
The Damonte Ranch community has experienced significant growth during the last few years and continues to grow. This project is anticipated to improve safety and travel times for commuters to and from the Damonte Ranch community to I-580 and westward. The Steamboat Parkway Improvement Project was identified as part of the South Meadows Multimodal Transportation Study that was completed in April 2020.
Construction is tentatively anticipated to begin in fall 2022.
