CHERRY CREEK REACH 5

AURORA, CO

Corridor Improvements

The goal of this project was to restore and stabilize the Cherry Creek Channel along an area bordered by E. Arapahoe Road on the north, S. Jordan Road on the west, E. Broncos Parkway on the south and S. Parker Road on the east. The channel was modified to allow storm flows to overbank in areas, protecting the existing infrastructure.

The construction of four riprap riffle structures, a boulder cascade drop structure and repair of eroded shoreline created a safe floodplain, which allowed for safe water flow. After a new trail was completed, bank protection was installed, along with seeding, trees, shrubs and willows.
