Street / Lane Closures
Every person who plans to work within the Town's right-of-way (ROW) must have a traffic control plan approved by a Town traffic engineer. The plan must include the following elements:
- A plan view of the street and surrounding roads needed in any detour (show lane widths and nearby traffic signs)
- The number and type of traffic control/detour signs needed to implement the plan
- Working date(s) and hour(s)
- Field contact person including on-site and office phone numbers
- Typical traffic control general instructions (Public Improvement Permit Instructions (PDF))
- Town of Castle Rock Sample Traffic Control Plans (PDF)
- To identify the street classification; reference the Roadway Functional Classification map.
- An approved Application for Street/Lane Closure (PDF)
Submit your ROW application and traffic control plan for approval by the Town's traffic engineer at least a week prior to a requested lane, shoulder or sidewalk closure. For a street closure, the application needs to be submitted 21 days prior to the start of work.
- Make sure all signage conforms to the most recent edition of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.
- If work outside of normal work hours is necessary, call the Traffic Engineering Department at 720-733-2479 for permission to extend working hours. Failure to do so could result in a fine.
- All non-applying signage must be out of motorists' view at the end of each work day.
- All signage and barricades must be picked up immediately following the completion of the construction project.
