We’ve all been watching the progress, and now it’s time to start driving. Castle Rock Parkway is open.Here are some things to know about driving on a brand-new 2-mile road:
• The speed limit is 35 mph. Please drive safely and pay extra attention.
• It may take some time for traffic to level out as we all find our new road routine. Traffic could be extra heavy on Castle Rock Parkway as motorists try using the new road. Meadows Parkway is still a good route to U.S. Highway 85 and I-25!
• At U.S. 85, there is a full interchange, so drivers can access both directions of the highway and Castle Rock Parkway. It’s controlled by one signal span, so drive carefully and follow the signs and striping.
• At I-25, a roundabout gives drivers access to all direction. Remember to yield to traffic already in the circle.
The project broke ground in October 2013. The new road is expected to improve operations at the current Founders/Meadows Parkway interchange with I-25 and the intersection of Meadows Parkway and U.S. 85. It will also provide a second northern access for residents on the west side of Town.
The project is the Town’s largest transportation project ever, and the Town didn’t do it alone. The road is a partnership among the Town, Douglas County and the Colorado Department of Transportation. Learn more about this significant partnership project at CRgov.com/NME.
