Moving Castle Rock in the right direction
In April 2005, more than 75 percent of Castle Rock voters approved the $30 million Transportation Action Plan bond issue. That approval led the Southeast and Southwest Arterial Connection Roads - now part of Plum Creek Parkway - to be completed years ahead of when they would have been without the voters' approval.
$10 million of the bonds were issued for the first two projects. Work continues on the third TAP project, the North Meadows Extension.
Southeast Arterial Connection Road - Involved reconstructing Ridge Road in 2007-08 and extending Plum Creek Parkway east to Ridge Road in 2008-09.
Southwest Arterial Connection Road - Involved reconstructing the Plum Creek Parkway interchange with Interstate 25; building a railroad bridge over Plum Creek Parkway; and extending Plum Creek Parkway west to Wolfensberger Road, all of which was completed in late 2009.
TAP Update newsletters
Updates on all three projects are included in the TAP Update, which was published bimonthly until 2010. The TAP Update is now published periodically, to provide updates on the North Meadows Extension.
