[ARCHIVED] Open house to be held April 7 for North Meadows Extension project

The Environmental Assessment of the benefits and impacts the North Meadows Extension project could have on the surrounding area has been completed.

An open house to provide information and get feedback on the assessment and the alternatives being considered will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 7, at the Douglas County Events Center, 500 Fairgrounds Drive.

The North Meadows Extension is being planned to provide a second access between The Meadows and U.S. Highway 85 and Interstate 25, relieving congestion on Meadows Parkway and improving traffic flow on I-25.

The Environmental Assessment considers the alternative of not building a new road along with the possibility of building two different alignments: one with an interchange at U.S. 85 and Atrium Drive and the other with an interchange at U.S. 85 and Castlegate Drive. Both build alternatives would connect to I-25 at the same point, about 1 mile north of the Founders/Meadows Parkway interchange.

No later than March 24, the Environmental Assessment will be available online at CRgov.com/nme. Hard copies also will be available for viewing at these locations:

  • Town Hall, 100 N. Wilcox St.
  • Castle Rock Service Center, 4175 N. Castleton Court
  • Douglas County Philip S. Miller Building, 100 Third St.
  • Philip S. Miller Library, 100 S. Wilcox St.
  • At the open house, representatives of the agencies working on the project will be available to answer questions. Attendees will be able to provide written comments at the meeting or afterward, up through May 7. A comment form will be available at the above Web address. A clerk recorder also will take verbal comments at the open house.

    At 6 p.m. Thursday, April 8, Town Council will hold a special meeting to discuss the project and consider stating a preference from among the construction alternatives. The Federal Highway Administration will consider that preference, all written comments received and other pertinent information in determining the preferred alternative. That decision is expected this summer.
