Progress Update: October 21, 2019
Six of 11 project phases are complete. When possible, the contractor will overlap or combine phases to save time and minimize travel impacts.
On Sunday, Monarch Boulevard south of Castle Pines Parkway reopened to traffic. During the Douglas County School District fall break, the contractor closed part of the Castle Pines Parkway / Monarch Boulevard intersection and reconstructed two phases of the project while traffic volumes were lower. This week, the contractor begins work on the inside lanes of Castle Pines Parkway. Drivers should continue to expect lane closures and traffic shifts. Alternate route area advised. The schedule is weather-dependent and subject to change.
Progress October 10, 2019
During the Douglas County School District fall break (Oct. 12 - 20), Monarch Boulevard just south of Castle Pines Parkway will temporarily close to all traffic. The contractor intends to construct two phases of the intersection project and complete work on the south leg of Monarch Boulevard in nine days. The schedule is weather-dependent and subject to change.
This section of Monarch Boulevard is narrow and would be difficult to maintain traffic on during construction. Closing the road to perform the work over fall break will impact fewer drivers, save time and maintain safety.
Signed detours utilizing Oxford Drive and Yorkshire Drive will be in place from 6 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12 through Sunday, Oct. 20. Alternate routes are advised. View the attached detour map.
The Castle Pines Parkway / Monarch Boulevard intersection reconstruction is part of the City's 2019 Pavement Rehabilitation Project. Visit the project website for more information including an interactive map of all current and planned construction.
