    Rocky Flats and the Jeffco Parkway

    When Congress adopted the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge Act in 2001, a 300-foot strip was allocated on the eastern edge of the refuge for future construction of the metropolitan beltway.

    An article published in the city of Arvada’s June/July “Arvada Report” details how neighboring cities and counties in the Rocky Flats Coalition of Local Governments and the Rocky Flats Stewardship Council have worked to ensure the ongoing health and safety of residents living near Rocky Flats and how mitigation efforts and testing included that 300-foot transportation corridor.
