Gordon Drive Improvement Project

Castle Rock Water and the Public Works Department are making infrastructure improvements along Gordon Drive to address stormwater flows and minimize street flooding. The project entails the addition of stormwater infrastructure; water and sanitary sewer line modifications and replacement; and pavement maintenance along Gordon Drive.

In coordination with the Town's Pavement Maintenance Program, reconstruction of Gordon Drive to address worn pavement will commence following the utility work between Johnson Drive and Gordon Lane. The cul-de-sacs that intersect with Gordon Drive are also scheduled to receive an asphalt overlay.

Along with heavy construction traffic during the day (7 a.m - 6 p.m.), there will be detours and limited access to roads and sidewalks. Your safety is very important to us, and local resident access is a priority. Traffic control plans will be coordinated with emergency services to ensure access and response times. We request that anyone with special needs contact us immediately to make access accommodations.

Project details

Construction began the week of April 8, 2019, with Iron Woman Construction as one of the primary contractors on site in the initial phase of the water upgrades. 

Please refer to map below for project specifications.

Red / Green / Blue areas

A stormwater pipe will be placed in the road under the pavement within the existing right of way on Gordon Drive between Johnson Drive and Gordon Lane. To accommodate this new stormwater infrastructure, the existing sanitary sewer infrastructure within the red area will be relocated and replaced. Sanitary sewer service lines, withing the road right-of-ways, will be replaced in all areas.

The existing water line will be replaced in all areas as an upgrade to the water distribution system. Service lines connecting each house will be replaced between the water main and meter pit. All homes within the project limits can expect periodic disruptions in water service. Efforts will be made to minimize the duration of any water outages, and the contractor, Iron Woman Construction, will be distributing notices regarding planned service disruptions. Interruptions will generally be between 4 and 8 hours long and will occur between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Gordon Drive currently has an inverted crown in the red area, which channels stormwater in the street. Once sanitary sewer, water line and storm sewer construction is complete, a new road with a standard crown, with catch curbs and gutters, and a new sidewalk will be constructed. Full depth asphalt pavement replacement, and concrete repairs, will be completed in the blue and green areas. The width of roads and sidewalks will not be altered. There will be periodic restricted and limited access to roads and sidewalks in all areas.

Purple area

A stormwater intake structure will be constructed within a Town-owned tract between 300 and 350 Gordon Drive, and an outlet structure will be constructed within the existing drainage easements between and behind 52 and 56 Gordon Drive. No disruption in water service or road access is expected. 

Schedule

This project began in April 2019 and is currently on schedule to continue through December 2019. Iron Woman Construction has been awarded this contract.
