Current Construction & Roadwork Updates

Current Updates on Roadwork and Detours

Bella Rosa Pkwy and Aggregate Blvd 

ROAD CLOSURE: Special attention for travel on Bella Rosa Pkwy, east of I-25. Please plan ahead for a detour starting Wednesday, November 1. Bella Rosa Pkwy will be closed between Aggregate Blvd (CR7) and West Frontage Rd (west of I25) for storm water drainage improvements.  The project includes the replacement of a culvert under Bella Rosa Pkwy near Aggregate Blvd.

Work is scheduled from November 1 through the end of the week. 

  • Bella Rosa Pkwy is closed between the West Frontage Rd (west of I25) and Homestead Dr (Rinn Valley).
  • Alternate routes advised are Godding Hollow Pkwy (Paved) or CR 20 ½ (gravel).
  • The road will open for local traffic only between West Frontage Rd and Homestead Dr. 
  • Please watch for road workers.
  • Work is subject to weather. Any updates will be added to this post and on our Roadwork webpage.  

Your patience is much appreciated as we take advantage of the great weather to complete this project. 

Did you know the Town of Frederick maintains more than 100 miles of public streets? To manage this system, the Town Engineering and Public Works Department uses a Pavement Management System to keep track of the road conditions and determine how long they will last. This helps the department decide when and how to fix Town-owned roads and alleyways.

You can view the Pavement Management System page to learn about past and future road projects through 2028. Pavement maintenance projects are based on road conditions and how much money the Town has in the budget to spend. Therefore, the areas that are planned for maintenance are just estimates, and they may change. However, the maps give you a general idea of what work will be done in your neighborhood in the next five years.

Each week during the construction season, we’ll update this page with information about the progress on our construction projects. Offseason updates (November-March) will be less frequent due to less activity. You may also view maps of past, present, and future work plans for roadways in the Town of Frederick.

Do not touch, move, or remove cones, signs, and barricades in roadwork and construction zones. 
Displacing site tools impedes and prolongs work.
Motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists are urged to avoid construction areas.
Pay close attention to traffic control signs, detours, and reduce speeds in work zones.

Project Updates

Bella Rosa Pkwy and Colorado Blvd Intersection Update

Great news for Carbon Valley residents! The Denver Regional Council of Governments supported a joint grant application from the towns of Frederick and Firestone. This secures $2 million in improvement funding for the Bella Rosa Parkway and Colorado Boulevard intersection. Ranked as the second highest priority in the Transportation Master Plan, the project aims to replicate the successful enhancements to the Colorado Boulevard and Tipple Parkway intersection, including additional turn lanes, traffic signals, and sidewalk connections. The project promotes regional collaboration by reducing traffic congestion, improving pedestrian connectivity, and enhancing overall safety. The Town of Frederick will include the intersection improvement project in their 2024-2027 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). After adopting the new TIP projects in August, an Intergovernmental Agreement will be executed with the Colorado Department of Transportation to initiate the design phase. Stay tuned for project updates!

Silver Birch Blvd and Bella Rosa Pkwy Intersection Improvement

A key short-term strategy of the Town of Frederick Transportation Master Plan (TMP) was recommendations focused on improved intersection operations and added capacity at priority corridors. In other words, the plan is to make intersections work better and have more space for cars. The intersection of Silver Birch Boulevard and Bella Rosa Parkway is one of the places that most need improvement. The Silver Birch Boulevard and Bella Rosa Parkway intersection was recognized by the Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) as the third highest area of need.  Considered a Tier-3 Short Term project, this intersection needs operational improvements and widening for high-priority turn lanes. 

The Town of Frederick has contracted with J-U-B Engineers, Inc. to provide design services for the Silver Birch Blvd and Bella Rosa Pkwy Intersection Improvement project. They will come up with a plan for how the intersection should look in the end, as well as a temporary plan for construction. The J-U-B Engineers design effort will include preliminary ultimate design configuration of the intersection and an interim intersection configuration for construction. The ultimate intersection configuration will include the installation of additional auxiliary acceleration and deceleration turn lanes, striping, signage, and new traffic signals with ADA curb ramps, sidewalk connections, and pedestrian crossing controls for increased multimodal public safety and improved drainage infrastructure, including curb and gutter. The interim intersection configuration will include left-turn auxiliary lanes and right-turn auxiliary acceleration and deceleration lanes as warranted, striping, signage, and new traffic signals, as well as improved drainage infrastructure. With the current undeveloped nature of the project location and no connecting pedestrian infrastructure near the curb and gutter, curb ramps, sidewalk, and crossing controls are removed from the interim design. Upon future development, the ultimate design with these items can be provided to a developer for implementation. 

Survey and Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) work will begin in the area of the intersection Monday, May 15. Please pay close attention to traffic control signs and be aware of personnel working in the area.
