CDOT completes roadway and traffic signal improvements on I-25 & Plum Creek/Meadows Parkway
DOUGLAS COUNTY — The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is pleased to announce the completion of the roadway and traffic signal improvement project on Interstate 25 at Plum Creek Parkway and Meadows Parkway. The contractor selected for the $1.25M project was Interface Communications.
As part of CDOT’s Whole System Whole Safety initiative, this project improved safety by removing the deteriorating signal at Meadows Parkway, intersections were widened to reduce congestion, upgraded signs were installed to help motorist navigate the new alignment, and new traffic detection was added to improve realtime traffic monitoring.
Crews made enhancements at four different locations which included: Dual right turn lanes at Meadows Parkway to reduce congestion, the left turn bay at Castleton Dr. was extended to lengthen and increase room for traffic, at Plum Creek the left turn lane was converted to a triple left turn to better accommodate traffic, and traffic signal improvements at Plum Creek. The project also included roadway widening, installation of bridge sings, upgrading the infrastructure, and removing old traffic poles and installing new ones.
