This scene is going to change rather drastically in the next two years or so. In 2018, Arvada residents voted to widen 72nd Avenue (from two lanes to four lanes) between Kipling Street and Swadley Court. 72nd Avenue is seen here as the Provo-Denver crosses. Not only will the road be widened, but a grade separation is also part of the project. 72nd Avenue will be lowered underneath the tracks and a new bridge will be built for the Moffat. I'll try to get some aerial footage of the work as it progresses. Plans for the underpass are slated for completion in Q2 of 2021. Construction will theoretically start in Q4 of 2021 and completion of the entire project at the end of 2022.
