City celebrates substantial completion of 96th Avenue extension

Commerce City officials today celebrated the substantial completion of a new, 2-mile road that extends 96th Avenue to Tower Road, providing a new east-west connection for residents and commuters. The heavy week of rain put a damper on plans to open the road, as officials were forced to delay the opening until early next week to ensure motorist safety. The two-lane road provides drivers another transportation alternative across the city from Interstate 76 to E-470.

“I am proud to watch Commerce City’s vision of a "Quality Community for a Lifetime" become a reality,” said Mayor Sean Ford. “Infrastructure improvements like the 96th Avenue roadway extension will help foster new residential and commercial development that will benefit all areas of our city.”

While this important east-west connection was on the long-term “To Do” list, it was able to be completed sooner than anticipated when the Buffalo Highlands Metropolitan District stepped up to become a partner. A six percent loan from the city, coupled with investor capital, will allow national homebuilders and commercial developers to access a key corridor that would’ve remained landlocked for years without infrastructure. The District expects to break ground on model homes by the end of the year.
