Gordon Drive Improvement Project

Updated: May 2019

Castle Rock Water and the Public Works Department are making infrastructure improvements along Gordon Drive to address stormwater flows and minimize street flooding. The project entails the addition of stormwater infrastructure; water and sanitary sewer line modifications and replacement; and pavement maintenance along Gordon Drive.

In coordination with the Town's Pavement Maintenance Program, reconstruction of Gordon Drive to address worn pavement will commence following the utility work between Johnson Drive and Gordon Lane. The cul-de-sacs that intersect with Gordon Drive are also scheduled to receive an asphalt overlay.

Along with heavy construction traffic during the day (7 a.m - 6 p.m.), there will be detours and limited access to roads and sidewalks. Your safety is very important to us, and local resident access is a priority. Traffic control plans will be coordinated with emergency services to ensure access and response times. We request that anyone with special needs contact us immediately to make access accommodations.

By the end of May, most of the sanitary sewer relocation and replacement will have been completed. Water line replacement will then begin. Anticipated completion of the water infrastructure is on schedule for late November.

Project details

Construction began the week of April 8, 2019, with Iron Woman Construction as one of the primary contractors on site in the initial phase of the water upgrades. 

Please refer to map below for project specifications.

Red area

A stormwater pipe will be placed in the road under the pavement within the existing right of way on Gordon Drive between Johnson Drive and Gordon Lane. To accommodate this new stormwater infrastructure, the existing sanitary sewer pipe will be relocated.

The existing water line will be replaced as an upgrade to the water distribution system. Service lines connecting each house will be replaced between the water main and meter pit (behind the sidewalk and within the right of way). This area will encounter intermittent water and sewer service disruptions for each of these construction phases.

Individual homes will receive notice 48 hours prior to service interruption. Interruptions will be between 4 and 8 hours long and will occur between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. There will be periodic restricted access to roads and sidewalks due to construction.

Gordon Drive currently has an inverted crown, which channels stormwater in the street. Once water line construction is complete, a new road with a standard crown, with catch curbs and gutters, and a new sidewalk will be constructed. The placement and size of roads and sidewalks will not be altered. There will be periodic restricted and limited access to roads and sidewalks. 

Green areas

The cul-de-sacs of Gordon Court, Gordon Place and Gordon Lane will be impacted by the improvements along Gordon Drive. Homes in these areas can expect intermittent water and sewer service disruptions. Notice will be given 48 hours before any expected disruption in service. Interruptions will be between 4 and 8 hours long and will occur between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. There will be limited access to roads and sidewalks periodically.

As part of the Town’s Pavement Improvement Plan, these roads are scheduled to receive an asphalt overlay.

Blue areas

Gordon Drive is scheduled for road improvements through the Town’s Pavement Maintenance Program and, thus, the remaining portion of Gordon Drive beyond the stormwater infrastructure project will receive a complete full-depth pavement replacement. This means the road will be completely removed and then rebuilt. Access along the road and sidewalk may be limited. No disruptions in water service are expected, but should water service disruption be necessary, a notice will be given 48 hours in advance. 

Purple area

A stormwater intake structure will be constructed within a Town-owned tract between 300 and 350 Gordon Drive, and an outlet structure will be constructed within the existing drainage easements between and behind 52 and 56 Gordon Drive. No disruption in water service or road access is expected. Sidewalks may be closed for extended periods of time, and sections may be replaced with a curb and gutter.

Schedule

This project began in April 2019 and is currently on schedule to continue through November 2019.
