Here is a more in-depth look at Tuesday’s meeting agenda:
- Resolution approving the construction contract for the Plum Creek Parkway widening and roundabout project – Town Council will be asked to approve a construction contract with Jalisco International Inc. for the Plum Creek Parkway widening and roundabout improvement project.
The work includes installation of new storm sewer pipe, drainage inlets and manholes; and construction of roundabouts at Gilbert and Eaton streets, two new lanes on Plum Creek Parkway between Gilbert and Eaton streets, and replacement of the pavement on existing lanes. Additional sidewalk improvements and pedestrian crossings are also included in the project’s scope.
If approved, construction is expected to begin this spring and be completed in the fall.
- Resolution approving a construction agreement for new water pumping, aquifer storage and recovery equipment – Town Council will be asked to approve a construction agreement with Hydro Resources – Rocky Mountain Inc. for the installation of new pumping, storage and recovery equipment and downhole power generation valves for two water wells currently being constructed near Ray Waterman Water Treatment Plant.
If the contract is approved, the equipment will have the capability to pump groundwater from the aquifers, and the ability to send treated excess water back into the aquifer for storage. This state-of-the art storage method helps prevent the water from being contaminated due to pollutants or lost due to evaporation.
Also on the agenda, Town Council will receive a status update on the Downtown Railroad Quiet Zone project. The project consists of updating the public crossings at Second, Third and Fifth streets. $900,000 to fund the project was included in the Encore redevelopment agreement. Council will also review contracts for the 2020 Pavement Maintenance Program. The annual roadwork program will focus on central Castle Rock, which includes neighborhoods such as The Woodlands, Red Hawk, parts of The Meadows, Craig & Gould and Metzler Ranch.
