Project Update: The Final Countdown

Project Update:

The Mini Roundabout:
The roundabout project is nearing completion, and the mini roundabout is now functional. The black high-tech concrete (similar to what was recently used in Glenwood Canyon) has been successfully installed, and lane stripes will soon be painted in the intersection. This will make the mini roundabout medians easier to see and use.

In the meantime, motorists are already using the mini roundabout and adjusting to the more streamlined intersection. Vehicles now only have to yield to traffic in the mini roundabout, and do not always have to stop where there once were stop signs. This results in an overall improvement to traffic flow. 

The Final Touches:
The project team is also working on finishing touches such as pedestrian crosswalk striping, signage, and creature comforts like the bus stop shelter. Be sure to watch for pedestrians in the newly located crosswalks, and give them the right-of-way.
All improvements will be functional by October 31st, which is ahead of schedule

Thank you to all of the construction crews that have been working hard for the past several months to keep the project ahead of schedule. It is quite the accomplishment.

Paving is Complete:
The main roundabout at Brush Creek and Wood Road is nearing completion, and crews finished installing the final lift of asphalt this week. Lane stripes were also added, and we are now awaiting the new down-valley bus stop shelter and guard rail. Congratulations to all of the hard working crews on reaching this major milestone.

The project will be complete by the end of October.

Mini Roundabout Installations:
The long awaited mini roundabout construction has begun and will be complete by October 17th, if Mother Nature cooperates. A special type of concrete is being used for the project allowing a compact construction schedule. Bus routes will return to the transit center following the mini roundabout completion.
