Project Update: Phase 2 Nears Completion in time for Holiday Weekend

Posted on June 30, 2016 at 2:40 PM by Travis Elliott

Roundabout logo

Project Update: Thursday, June 30

Roundabout and Upper Kearns Road set to Open Soon:

Gould Construction has successfully completed the majority of road work on the lower section of Brush Creek and Upper Kearns Road ahead of schedule, which allows us to open these roadways to two lane traffic earlier than anticipated. 

Good News:

The roundabout and Upper Kearns Road is expected to be opened up to traffic on Friday.

Reaching this major milestone in the project means that motorists traveling through the intersection will no longer experience the delays seen over the past week. Moving forward, traffic delays will be much less frequent and more manageable.

Bad News:


One-lane closures on Brush Creek and Kearns will be necessary again sometime in August to complete retaining wall work, sidewalks, medians, and to finish installing crosswalks.

In the meantime, temporary crosswalks and walkways are in place to ensure pedestrian safety. 

Pedestrian Walkways:

Pedestrians making their way through the project site should use the designated walkways, crosswalks, and follow all signage. For your safety, please avoid areas with construction activity.

The temporary bus stops remain in place at the intersection of Brush Creek and Lower Kearns.  

What's Next?


Phase 3 begins on Wednesday, July 6th. At this time, the upper portion of Brush Creek Road, above the intersection, will be closed for approximately 4 weeks.

A detour will be in place via Carriage Way, and all residents and guests will still be able to access all areas of the Upper Village, including: the Village Mall, Divide Road, Krabloonik, and/or Home.


Thank you for everyone's patience, and congratulations to the community on reaching this major milestone.
