As part of the road improvements along Plum Creek Parkway, the Town is installing a new electronic traffic management system. It sounds complicated, but it’s simple to use and is expected to smooth out the weekday commute for drivers getting to Interstate 25 during the morning rush hour.
Testing is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. Monday, Jan. 9
The Town has invested $3.5 million in a smoother drive along Plum Creek Parkway.
At Wilcox Street and Plum Creek Parkway, the intersection was reconstructed to improve drainage and ride quality by removing the “dip” on the east side of this intersection. Plus, additional turn lanes were added to improve traffic flow for westbound Plum Creek Parkway and northbound Wilcox Street
New lanes were added throughout the intersection to improve traffic flow. There are now two northbound left-turn lanes from Wilcox Street to Plum Creek Parkway; a free right-turn lane onto southbound Wilcox Street; and a dedicated right onto northbound Wilcox St.
A southbound free right-turn lane was added from Perry Street to Plum Creek Parkway
A westbound right-turn lane was added from Plum Creek Parkway to northbound I-25
Plum Creek Parkway was widened in the I-25 ramp intersection to accommodate a future triple left-turn lane from the southbound off-ramp to eastbound Plum Creek Parkway (a future CDOT project)
Crews made the most of this inconvenience by also repairing the pavement, curbs and sidewalks along Plum Creek Parkway between Douglas County Fairgrounds and Wilcox Street
The Town also performed additional crack sealing along Plum Creek Parkway between I-25 and Plum Creek Boulevard. This work helped smooth out the road and extend the life of the street
