[ARCHIVED] Roadwork progresses to widen Plum Creek Parkway

Plum Creek Parkway Improvements begin November 2019

In fall 2019, underground utility work began along Plum Creek Parkway in preparation for roadway improvements. This spring, the project moves into roadway construction to widen the parkway between Gilbert and Eaton streets and add two roundabouts. 

Construction is expected to begin this week and be completed by the end of the year. This project will improve traffic flow on Plum Creek Parkway, but in the meantime, motorists are advised to take alternate routes. 

During construction of the roundabout at the intersection of Plum Creek Parkway and Gilbert Street, traffic flow will be reduced to one lane in each direction, creating delays. This phase of the work is expected to last through July, weather dependent. We understand the inconvenience and ask residents to put safety first by obeying construction signage and flaggers. 

For more information and detour updates throughout construction, visit CRgov.com/PlumCreekPkwy. 

Additional improvements with this project include a guardrail along parts of westbound Plum Creek Parkway, a new sidewalk, bicycle lanes and flashing crosswalk beacons to improve pedestrian and driver safety. 

This phase of the project will cost about $6.8 million and is being primarily funded by the Transportation Capital Fund, which receives revenue from development impact fees. The replacement of the existing pavement, which is just under $1 million, will be funded mostly by sales tax revenue from the Transportation Fund.
