Douglas & El Paso Counties - The southeastern region of the Colorado Department of Transportation has identified a need to evaluate traffic operations and design of a roundabout at the intersection of CO 83 and County Line/Palmer Divide Avenue located at the boundary of Douglas County and El Paso County.

CDOT will host a second opportunity to discuss the intersection and planned roundabout at an open house on Oct. 25 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the commons area at Monument Academy Middle School (east campus), 4303 Pinehurst Circle, Colorado Springs. The Project Manager is planning to have an open discussion with attendees from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Attendees will have time to review materials and provide written comments from 6 to 7 p.m. The open house will have stations showing a detailed design of the roundabout intersection, information about traffic data in the area and performance of the roundabout, along with videos about driving roundabouts.

The project is currently in the design phase. Funding for final design and construction of the project have not been identified.
