Jefferson Parkway: Tell the County Commissioners to Stop Throwing Good Money After Bad



       In May 2008, the Board of County Commissioners joined Arvada and Broomfield to create the Jefferson Parkway Public Highway Authority, whose purpose is to build a privately funded toll road connecting Highway 128 and Highway 93, skirting the Rocky Flats Wildlife Refuge.  Over 7 years later, JPPHA still has not found an investor, because traffic studies don’t show enough demand for it.  Meanwhile, Jeffco has contributed over $3.3 million to the JPPHA which it will never get back, and has budgeted $200,000 more for 2016.  Tell the commissioners it’s time to stop wasting taxpayer money.  Their single email address is commish@jeffco.us.
