Road maintenance is imperative to safety and quality of life. While it's been a long construction season, the wait is finally over. All lanes of Meadows Parkway are officially reopened. Thank you for everyone's patience and dedication minding traffic control measures and detours.
The Town invested in a full reconstruction of Meadows Parkway between Prairie Hawk Drive and U.S. Highway 85. Crews completely removed the concrete pavement and replace it with asphalt.
There are still a few minor items crews need to address, including work in both the shoulder and median area. Please be mindful of construction workers in the area.
The Town has been preparing for this work for some time. The timing of this project was purposely planned after the opening of Castle Rock Parkway/North Meadows Drive. In addition, the Town last year worked to improve Coachline Road for an anticipated increase in detour-related traffic.
The Town has added a lane from North Meadows Drive to Butterfield Crossing Drive in an effort to keep traffic moving through that intersection. Now, that intersection has a left-turn lane, a through lane and a through-right lane.
This improvement is budgeted at $2.5 million. Of that, $1.3 million is coming from a federal grant, which was administered to the Town through the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) and CDOT. The rest is funded by the Town’s Transportation Fund, which includes revenues from sales tax, motor vehicle tax and building use tax.
