Meadows Parkway work starts Tuesday. Here’s what to know
Let’s begin with the end in mind. Once completed, construction on Meadows Parkway will lead to a safer, smoother road.
Starting Tuesday May 29, crews will begin removing and replacing the 30-year-old concrete with asphalt along Meadows Parkway between U.S. Highway 85 and Prairie Hawk Drive. Work is expected to be completed before school starts in August.
The Town knows doing this work will mean inconvenience to drivers. For the safety of the traveling public and our workers, here are a few reminders as work gets underway:
Merge late, then alternate: During construction, portions of the construction zone will be down to one lane in each direction. If you’re in the lane that’s ending, merge where it ends, not before. If you’re in the through lane, let in every-other-car. It’s important to use all available lane space. This will ensure an orderly progression and keep traffic moving. These lane closures will be in place for most of the project, including overnight.
Discover an alternate route
: Consider taking North Meadows Drive, Coachline Road or Prairie Hawk Drive. View a map at CRgov.com/MeadowsParkway
. (Please note there will be some night work on Prairie Hawk Drive on May 29 and 30. This work is not expected to impact traffic during daytime hours, including at the intersection of Prairie Hawk and Meadows Parkway.)
Give yourself extra time: Construction will add time to your commute. Slower speeds in work zones are for everyone’s safety. Thank you for your patience!
Remember to shop local!: Construction can often impact our local businesses. The Town intends to maintain business access at all times, so please remember your local businesses are open during construction.
