The City of Aurora has started a five-phase, three-year construction project near Anschutz Medical Campus. Construction began in May 2019 at the intersection of East Colfax Avenue and Peoria Street.

Phase one is expected to last six months and will impact Colfax from Peoria to Ursula. There will be a period of several weeks during that six-month period in which there will only be one lane open to traffic in each direction on Colfax between Peoria and Ursula.

Additional phases of the project will last through 2021. See the city of Aurora's website for up-to-date information and a map of where the construction will occur.

How will construction impact my child's appointment at Children's Colorado?

Due to the underground work that needs to happen throughout this project, crews will need to close lanes of traffic along East Colfax Avenue and Peoria Street at various points throughout the project.

Alternative routes during construction

We know there will be significant traffic impacts throughout the duration of this project, and we appreciate your patience during this work. Please allow more time than usual to get to your child's appointment.

Patients and families coming to our hospital on Anschutz Medical Campus may also want to consider the RTD's R Line Light Rail to avoid being caught in the traffic. See the R line schedule.

Please note that Children's Colorado parking will not be impacted by the construction.

How long will the construction last?

Children's Colorado will primarily be impacted by phases one, four and five of the construction. For more information about the construction phases and timing, please visit the city of Aurora's website.

Construction will occur from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with possible work occurring on Saturdays.

About the construction project

The objective of the Fitzsimmons-Peoria Stormwater Outfall Project is to rebuild the stormwater conveyance system in the Peoria Street corridor (Quari Court to Sand Creek) to meet current Aurora stormwater standards.

The current storm drainage infrastructure was built in the 1970s and was meant to withstand a "10-year storm." The city of Aurora believes there is a substantial storm and flood risk in this area. The rebuild of the storm water conveyance system will meet current Aurora stormwater standards for withstanding a "100-year storm."
