Why can't the traffic engineer time the lights so you don't have to stop at every red light. Founders is a mess.

Timing signals is an imperfect science, and in Castle Rock, managing that science is a partnership between the Town and the Colorado Department of Transportation. 

CDOT owns and operates signals along US Highway 85, including the segment between U.S. 85 and I-25 known as Meadows Parkway. The same is true for Founders Parkway, between I-25 and Fifth Street. Some signals are pre-programmed to go with the ebb and flow of traffic, based on traffic counts and patterns during certain times of the day. 

Considering the level of growth and changing traffic patterns in and around Castle Rock, the Town and CDOT have regular discussions and review traffic operations. You can learn more about the Town’s philosophy and how we measure this topic in our asset management plan on our website.
