2019 Road Repairs
Castle Pines Parkway / Monarch Boulevard Intersection Reconstruction
Construction at the Castle Pines Parkway and Monarch Boulevard intersection began in late August 2019. This major improvement project replaces the entire roadway and subgrade beneath the pavement at one of the highest-volume intersections in Castle Pines. A second left-turn lane from southbound Monarch Boulevard to eastbound Castle Pines Parkway is also part of the project.
Construction is divided into 11 phases. The contractor will reconstruct the four corners of the intersection first before working on the inside lanes and the center of the intersection. Project completion is anticipated in late November 2019. Construction hours are from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m., Monday – Friday but may be modified to complete a task or adjust for weather conditions.
Travel delays are possible during peak hours and drivers should anticipate frequent traffic pattern changes. Please use caution and slower speeds in the work zone.
Progress Update: October 21, 2019
Six of 11 project phases are complete. When possible, the contractor will overlap or combine phases to save time and minimize travel impacts.
Yesterday, Monarch Boulevard south of Castle Pines Parkway reopened to traffic. During the Douglas County School District fall break, the contractor closed part of the Castle Pines Parkway / Monarch Boulevard intersection and reconstructed two phases of the project while traffic volumes were lower. This week, the contractor begins work on the inside lanes of Castle Pines Parkway. Drivers should continue to expect lane closures and traffic shifts. Alternate route area advised. The schedule is weather-dependent and subject to change.
Progress Update: October 10, 2019
Three of 11 project phases are complete. Work on the northeast corner (Phase 4) is underway. The project team has identified several phasing and process improvements to expedite construction. When possible, the contractor will overlap or combine phases to save time and minimize travel impacts. The City is also exploring the use of ‘high-early’ concrete, which cures faster than traditional concrete mixes, for some project phases.
During the Douglas County School District fall break (Oct. 12 – 20), Monarch Boulevard just south of Castle Pines Parkway will temporarily close to all traffic. The contractor intends to construct two phases of the intersection project and complete work on the south leg of Monarch Boulevard in nine days. The schedule is weather-dependent and subject to change. This section of Monarch Boulevard is narrow and would be difficult to maintain traffic on during construction. Closing the road to perform the work over fall break will impact fewer drivers, save time and benefit safety. Signed detours utilizing Oxford Drive and Yorkshire Drive will be in place from 6 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12 through Sunday, Oct. 20. Detour map. Alternate routes are advised.
Residential Street Improvements
Thirteen residential streets are either under construction or scheduled for improvements this fall. In addition to asphalt repair or replacement, concrete curb ramps will be upgraded to meet current ADA standards. The contractor will notify each impacted residence of the anticipated schedule and parking restrictions in advance of construction.
