Maintaining roadways for safety and efficiency is a priority for the Town of Castle Rock. Town Council paved the way Tuesday for a major reconstruction project to achieve that priority.During its regular meeting Feb. 20, Council unanimously approved a construction contract with Schmidt Construction Company for the full reconstruction of Meadows Parkway between the bridge over U.S. Highway 85 and Prairie Hawk Drive.The concrete pavement was installed in 1987 and has reached the end of its life. To repair the road, crews will remove the concrete pavement and replace it with asphalt. Construction is expected to begin after Memorial Day and last through mid-August.Sign up for email updates at CRgov.com/MeadowsParkway.What to expectIn all, work is expected to last 75 calendar days, with the goal of completing the work while school is out for the summer. When work begins, portions of the roadway will be down to one lane in each direction. Discover alternate routes – such as North Meadows Drive, Castle Rock Parkway, Prairie Hawk Drive, Red Hawk Drive, and Coachline Road¬ – ¬¬at CRgov.com/MeadowsParkway.The Town knows this temporary inconvenience will lead to long-term gain – a smoother road for the thousands of drivers who use Meadows Parkway each day. Thank you for your patience.Previous preparationThe Town has been preparing for this work for some time. The timing of this project was purposely planned after the opening of Castle Rock Parkway/North Meadows Drive. In addition, the Town last year worked to improve Coachline Road for an anticipated increase in detour-related traffic.Before work begins this year, a right-turn-only lane will be added from North Meadows Drive to Butterfield Crossing Drive in an effort to keep traffic moving through that intersection.The project is budgeted for $2.5 million. Of that, $1.3 million is coming from a Federal Grant administered through the Denver Regional Council of Governments.Watch for information about an open house regarding this project and sign up for email updates.
