Studies over recent decades have shown plutonium at more than 100x background radiation along Indiana St.
The half-life of plutonium is 24,110 years.
There is pending litigation on 3 lawsuits regarding contamination at Rocky Flats (more information available on rockyflatsambushedgrandjury.com)
Local legislators, local school boards, and community groups from around the nation oppose public recreation at Rocky Flats.
7 local school districts made a commitment to not allow field trips to Rocky Flats. This includes BVSD, SVVSD, Adams 12, Adams 14, Jeffco Public Schools, and Denver Public Schools.
In 2016 property owners in the Cook V. Rockwell case received a settlement of $375 million due to contamination from the Rocky Flats Plant. The jury found that “plutonium will continue to be present on the class properties indefinitely”.
The Jefferson Parkway would not complete the beltway around Denver. There would still be a number of stoplights and road transfers.
