Plum Creek Parkway
For drivers on the south side of Castle Rock, the Town is planning a two-phase project to widen Plum Creek Parkway between Gilbert Street on the west and Ridge Road on the east. In addition, the intersection of Plum Creek Parkway and Gilbert Street will be converted from the current temporary signal to a multi-lane roundabout. These improvements are expected to improve access to Plum Creek Parkway’s interchange with I-25 and increase bicycle access with new bike lanes.

Town Council discussion

Meeting starts at 6 p.m.
Town Hall, 100 N. Wilcox St.
Learn about the project
DesignCouncil approved a design contract with engineering firm Kimley Horn & Assoc. at its April 4, 2018, meeting.
In addition to reconstructing and widening Plum Creek Parkway, the project will include a new roundabout at the Gilbert Street intersection. Feedback to date has led to two enhancements being added to the project: a guardrail along part of the north side of the roadway, and installation of a pedestrian crossing with flashing lights. Additional design enhancements Town Council will consider on Sept. 18 are:
- Constructing an additional roundabout at Eaton Street
- Constructing a sound fence along both sides of the roadway
Timeline and phasing
Construction on the roundabout and phase one of the widening – between Gilbert Street and Eaton Circle – would occur in 2019 as part of the Town’s annual Pavement Maintenance Program. The second phase of construction is tentatively set for 2022, depending on available funding.
Design for this project is budgeted at $480,515 and is funded by the Town’s Transportation Capital Fund, which includes growth-related revenues from impact fees and building use tax.
These improvements were defined in the Town’s Transportation Master Plan. Reducing congestion in the area has been a priority for Town Council. Learn more about that plan and read the document at CRgov.com/TMP.
