Baptist Road & Terrazzo Drive Roundabout in Monument

Community Open House - June 11

There will be a community open house on Tuesday, June 11 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce located at 166 Second Street in Monument. This open house will be an opportunity for the community to gain information and ask questions regarding the benefits of the project, construction phases and logistics of traffic traveling through the construction zone. Both CDOT engineers and Native Sun Project Managers will be available to provide information and answer questions.

About the Project:

This is a roadway improvement project which includes the construction of a roundabout configuration at the intersection of West Baptist Road and Terrazzo Drive in Monument, Colorado. The intersection is just west of the Interstate 25 interchange and east of an existing roundabout along W. Baptist Road and Wood Carver Road (south leg) and Old Denver Road (north leg). The project limits include approximately 0.25 miles of West Baptist Road and 0.15 miles of Terrazzo Drive

The roundabout will include concrete sidewalk and median construction as well as various drainage improvements adjacent to the intersection. Additionally, the project also includes clearing and grubbing, removals, utility relocation, striping, signing and erosion control

Roundabouts greatly reduce the amount of time needed to get through an intersection. They improve traffic flow by allowing vehicles to continue to move without stopping through an intersection, or at least with fewer stops.

Roundabouts increase safety and reduce incidences of crashes by preventing left turns across oncoming traffic. When crashes do occur they are typically less severe than traditional intersections.


Project Benefits

  • Roundabouts greatly reduce the amount of time needed to get through an intersection.
    They increase safety and reduce incidences of crashes by preventing left turns across oncoming traffic. When crashes do occur, they are typically less severe than traditional intersections.
