Weekly Construction Update

Each week during construction season, we'll be updating this page with information about the progress on our construction projects. Offseason updates (November-March) will be less frequent due to less activity.

I-25 and HWY 52 Update

The Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) grant to improve the acceleration lane onto eastbound HW52 from I-25 has completed initial plans and is awaiting CDOT to provide authorization for the project to continue. This is an exciting update on a much-needed improvement to our community.

Trail Construction

5/21/18 - Construction of the 2018 trail segments is set to begin this week.  Work will begin in the northeast corner of Eagle Valley, adjacent to Silver Birch Boulevard.  Currently, in this area, the trail ends abruptly.   The trail will be extended to the north where it will “T” to the west and east.  The western portion will tie into the cul-de-sac at Wren Court and the eastern portion will lead to a crossing of Silver Birch and tie into the sidewalk on the north side of Mount Audubon Street.  An additional trail will be constructed in Eagle Valley to tie Osprey Circle to Kingbird Drive.

In the Angel View Estates neighborhood, a segment of trail will be built from Peace Street east for a future trail connection.  A second segment will be built from the east end of Wisdom Court to the existing trail that runs north/south.  

Finally, the Town is working with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to build trails that provide Safe Routes to School.  These trails will be built along the east side of Ridgeway Boulevard from Angel View to Savannah, provide a crossing of Ridgeway near Lyden Creek Boulevard, and continue west to Frederick Way, providing a crossing of Frederick Way, and continuing west to Maple Street.  This provides a safe route for students to the south side of Thunder Valley K-8.  A contract for design is currently under consideration.  Construction is anticipated later this summer.

Fox Run Park Renovations

5/21/18 - Work to remove the old playground and the pea gravel from the playbay in the lower park is complete. A new playground is in transit and will be installed upon arrival. Once the new playground is installed, a new poured-in-place surface will be added to the playbay.  In the upper playground, the basketball hoop has been removed to allow additional concrete to be poured extending the court by approximately 5' to the north. The hoop will be re-installed and the court will have new striping added to distinguish between a basketball court and pickleball court.  A pickleball net will be added on the southern portion of the court allowing the area to serve another purpose.  Additionally, a bench and trash can will be added to further distinguish the two courts.
