Roadway projects are in progress around Town at all times whether in design, construction or cleanup phases. The Town is actively improving its roadways to help accommodate growth and safer travel.
At the beginning of each year, the Public Works Department budgets for capital improvement projects. These include major construction projects which are funded through the transportation fund and tax revenues.
In addition to capital improvement projects, the Town has a Pavement Maintenance Program. Under this program, road work is completed each year to improve drainage and surface conditions. The funding for this work is budgeted through federal funds and Town tax revenues.
Sometimes, a project may be happening in Town, but is not run by the Town. Often, these are Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) projects, which include any work along Founders/Meadows Parkway and other state roadways. Learn more about these projects on the State's CDOT website.
We understand roadwork creates temporary inconvenience. Here are some tips to make your drive a little easier.
Plan ahead: During construction, consider an alternate route that may prevent additional delays. Before you hit the road, visit our roadwork map to view any construction activities.
Give yourself extra time: Construction will no doubt add some time to your commute. Slower speeds in these zones are for everyone's safety. So leave early and crank up that extra song, or listen to that next chapter on your audiobook.
Be a courteous driver: Roadwork will bring new access and increase safety. Give yourself, your fellow drivers and our crews a break, knowing the benefits are worth the temporary inconvenience.
Slow down, drive safely: The average construction zone speed limit is 30 mph. Please obey all speed limits and other traffic control. Help everyone get home safely.
