Crystal Valley Parkway and Plum Creek Boulevard Roundabout

To help reduce vehicle speeds and improve safety and operations in the area, the intersection of Crystal Valley Parkway and Plum Creek Boulevard will be improved with a roundabout.

Project background

Town staff reviewed a variety of roadway improvement options to identify one that meets the most elements valued by the community: high safety, low lifecycle cost, low downtime, low environmental impacts, and reliability. The roundabout option was determined to be the most effective over traffic signal and stop sign options.

The project implements the following:

  • Improved access to the new Crystal Valley interchange from the southeast areas of Town, once constructed.
  • Bicycle lanes and improved pedestrian crossings.
  • Reduced speeds at the intersection, which assists with improved safety.

Project timeline

  • Contract approval in December 2022
  • Construction began in March 2023
  • Substantial project completion achieved in December 2023

Construction

We are pleased to share that the roundabout construction project at Crystal Valley Parkway and Plum Creek Boulevard is substantially complete.
