Traffic Operations Improvement Project, Founders over I-25, to Complete

September 18, 2015 - Central/Eastern Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Project Completion Scheduled for end of September.

CASTLE ROCK – On July 20, 2015, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) began a $1.4 million project along the overpass of Founder’s Parkway over I-25 in an effort to improve traffic operations as growth in Castle Rock continues.  This project increases operational capacity of the intersection by adding an additional lane to the on-ramp from eastbound Founders Parkway to northbound I-25. Motorists can expect the roadway to be in its final alignment—with new additional lanes open for the northbound I-25 ramp—by the end of September 2015.

During the remainder of the project, motorists can expect various lane closures during overnight hours on both eastbound and westbound Founders/Meadows Parkway as final striping is completed. Throughout the rest of construction, two-lane traffic will continue to be maintained during peak travel times. Lane closures will only take place overnight. In addition to the new ramp lane, the project repaired portions of the roadway, sidewalk and bridge in the area along with new ADA curb ramps for pedestrians. 

CDOT, Kraemer North America and the Town of Castle Rock would like to thank motorists for their patience during this construction. This work completes all construction CDOT has planned at this time for the Founders/Meadows Corridor.
