Plum Creek Parkway Widening
From Founders Village to Downtown, Plum Creek Parkway is a key roadway connecting motorists to neighborhoods around Town. As part of its Transportation Master Plan, the Town is investing in the widening of Plum Creek Parkway, east of Gilbert Street to Ridge Road.
This project includes the addition of two lanes on Plum Creek Parkway, between Gilbert Street and Ridge Road, and roundabouts at the intersections of Gilbert and Eaton streets.
Additional improvements include a guardrail along parts of westbound Plum Creek Parkway, a new sidewalk, bicycle lanes and flashing crosswalk beacons to improve pedestrian and driver safety.
The project will improve access to the Interstate 25/Plum Creek Parkway interchange from the eastern areas of Town, and will also decrease traffic congestion in the area.
In August 2021, work to widen Plum Creek Parkway between Gilbert and Eaton streets was completed.
In July 2022, Phase 2 construction began. This phase of Plum Creek Parkway widening will add two lanes and a sidewalk from the Eaton Street roundabout to the Ridge Road roundabout. Phase 2 construction was completed in October 2023.
This work included:
- Drainage improvements
- Roadway widening
- Sidewalk improvements
- Ridge Road roundabout modifications
- Street lighting
Phase 2 of the project will cost about $8.1 million and is being primarily funded by the Transportation Capital Fund, which receives revenue from development impact fees.
These improvements were defined in the Town's Transportation Master Plan. Reducing congestion in the area has been a priority for Town Council. Learn more about that plan and read the document.
