Jefferson Parkway Public Highway Authority (JPPHA) meeting

The next JPPHA board meeting is Thursday, December 21, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. at Arvada City Hall located at 8101 Ralston Road, Arvada 80002. The meeting room is on the third floor. Visit the website: for information about this proposed high-speed private tollway that is planned to extend across Arvada from Broomfield to Hwy 93. Opponents raise concerns about a highway being built through Rocky Flats weapons-grade plutonium contamination east of the former nuclear weapons plant. A recent class action lawsuit settlement (Cook vs. Rockwell) ruled in favor of plaintiffs whose property values were adversely affected due to the contamination. The weapons-grade plutonium has a half life of almost 25,000 years and is still present in these neighborhoods and along the proposed route of this private highway. But since the tollway is a private project, no testing is required.

Please attend this meeting and learn more. Public comment is welcome.
