Construction to start Aug. 20 along Meadows Boulevard

PMP-MeadowsBlvdNEWS

Annual road maintenance helps ensure Castle Rock’s roadways remain safe and maximizes the lifespan of the pavement. Starting Monday, crews will begin work along Meadows Boulevard between North Meadows Drive and Cherokee Drive, west of Castle Rock Middle School.

Crews will start work to replace damaged concrete and smooth out pavement. This work will be similar to what was completed last year on Coachline Drive, and will mean some lane closures and realignments will be necessary. Drivers, please be patient, and watch for construction signs, cone zones and detours.

Construction will begin on the westbound side of the road and then switch to the eastbound. One lane in each direction will be maintained throughout construction. However, heavy traffic is expected around school drop-off and pick-up times.

Alternate routes include: Butterfield Crossing Drive. (Please note, Butterfield Crossing Drive will be reconstructed next summer.)

Work is expected to last through mid-October, though weather in Colorado can often impact construction schedules.

This roadwork will be completed as part of the Town’s annual Pavement Maintenance Program. This Council-approved program concentrates residential road maintenance to one of five defined residential areas each year on a rotating basis. Additionally, primary streets receive repairs as needed. The goal is to increase efficiency, reduce costs and minimize disruptions to neighborhoods.

In all, the Town will invest $11 million in street maintenance this year. The funding is primarily from the Town’s Transportation Fund, which includes revenues from sales tax, motor vehicle tax and building use tax.
