Colorado Department of Transportation Projects

The Town of Castle Rock and the Colorado Department of Transportation share the important responsibility of making roads in Castle Rock safe for all travelers. CDOT owns and maintains Interstate 25 as well as all state highways, which includes U.S. Highway 85 (Meadows Parkway from the junction with U.S. 85 to I-25) and State Highway 86 (Founders Parkway east). The Town owns and maintains the other public roadways in Town.

Improvements completed along Founders/Meadows Parkway
CDOT has completed a project along Founders / Meadows Parkway between Factory Shops Boulevard and Woodlands Boulevard to improve traffic flow through this busy corridor. While this project will be completed by CDOT, the Town recognizes the importance of this thoroughfare and prepared these Web pages to keep you informed.

CDOT completed the work in two phases:
This project is separate from the Town's North Meadows Extension project, which will create a new connection with I-25 about 1 mile north of the Founders / Meadows interchange.

Founders Parkway and Allen Way
The Town and CDOT recognize the importance of improving this intersection. CDOT and the Town have agreed on the design of this intersection. A second eastbound left-turn lane onto Allen Way from Founders Parkway will be added as part of future construction. It will not be part of the concrete replacement. However, once the construction is complete, crews will re-stripe the westbound right-turn-only lane into a through-lane.

Town Council first heard of the plans and options for this road work in June 2013. Read the Town Council memo or watch the Town Council presentation.

Then, CDOT and the Town hosted two open houses - one for residents and one for business owners - to gather input on a specific part of the project, the Founders Parkway and Allen Way intersection. Read CDOT's Report.
