Maintaining safe roads and ensuring infrastructure keeps up with demand are priorities for the Town of Castle Rock. Sometimes, doing that work means inconvenience to drivers or businesses.
Starting Tuesday, the Town is asking for your patience along Plum Creek Parkway. That’s when crews will start work to add lanes and smooth out the roadway between Perry Street and Interstate 25. Work is expected to take most of the summer.
Here’s a look at the improvements planned, starting from Perry Street and working west:
• The Town will add a dedicated right from southbound Perry Street to Plum Creek Parkway• At Wilcox Street and Plum Creek Parkway, the intersection will be reconstructed to improve drainage and ride quality by removing the “dip” on the east side of this intersection. Plus, additional turn lanes will be added to improve traffic flow for westbound Plum Creek Parkway and northbound Wilcox Street • At I-25 and Plum Creek Parkway, new electronic signage will provide an additional right-turn lane for drivers to access the northbound I-25 on-ramp during heavy morning traffic hours. Also, the lanes on the southbound off-ramp will be rearranged for better traffic flow• Finally, crews will make the most of this inconvenience by also repairing the pavement, curbs and sidewalks along Plum Creek Parkway between Douglas County Fairgrounds and Wilcox Street
To do this work safely, some lane and intersection closures will be necessary, along with some detours. However, at least one lane of through traffic will be maintained in both directions on Plum Creek Parkway. Still, drivers may consider alternate routes.

Portions of the road will have to be removed for extended periods of time, so night-only closures aren’t possible. Work is expected to wrap up by mid-August, though all construction schedules in Colorado depend on weather.
