Aurora Mayor Steven Hogan died in 2015 at the age of 69 yet his vision of Aurora continues to reach fruition after his death.
Steve spent a majority of his life as a public servant serving in the Colorado State legislature, as the first executive director of the E-470 Public Highway Authority and as a broad member, the Aurora city council and ultimately as mayor of Aurora.
Throughout his career Steve had a vision to improve the Colorado’s transportation system and provide a government that was truly transparent to those whom he governed.
He worked to develop the alternative E-470 PHA from a small four- mile toll road into a larger, financially successful transportation corridor connecting with most of the north and south transportation corridors.
He helped in negotiating the development of a coalition of cities, Arapahoe County, Colorado Department of Transportation and the Department of Defense to fund the construction of a 6th Avenue new extension from Aurora to E-470 and the eastern parts of Arapahoe County.
The completed corridor, now called the Steven D. Hogan Parkway, opened last month, will significantly reduce travel time to those areas and provide a safer and more convenient access to E-470.
In spite of the fact that Steve’s life was cut short; his remarkable achievements and vision continues to find their way into achievable public policy and brick and mortar projects.
Steve’s legacy of achievements continues to grow. Steve we will continue to work to achieve your dreams and expand your legacy.
