Current Construction & Roadwork Updates
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.
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.
2023 Seal Project - Pavement Maintenance Program
The Town of Frederick has contracted Vance Brothers, Inc. for the 2023 Seal Project - Pavement Maintenance Program. This year’s roadway maintenance project will include crack seal, mastic crack seal, patching, slurry seal, striping, and thermoplastic pavement markings.
Crack Seal and Mastic Crack Seal operations began Monday, March 20. The neighborhoods listed below will be impacted from March 20 through April. Roadwork schedules are subject to change due to weather, supply chains, and other unforeseen barriers. "No Parking" signs will indicate streets being worked on. Maps with specific roads can be viewed by clicking on each neighborhood.
Slurry Seal operations are anticipated to begin in late April. The slurry seal application provides a new surface with improved skid resistance and will include short-term closure of roads receiving treatment. Areas of work in this year’s project include Downtown Frederick and Raspberry Hill subdivisions.
Maps with work areas are linked to each listed subdivision. Please be on the lookout for “No Parking” signs and stay off the roads during posted work dates.
2023 Pavement Maintenance Program
The Town of Frederick has contracted Holcim-WCR, Inc. for the 2023 Pavement Maintenance Program. The maintenance of asphalt pavement will preserve the integrity and expand the life of the roadway preventing more drastic and costly maintenance treatment methods in the future. This year’s Pavement Maintenance Program will include patching, 1.5-inch mill & overlay, roadway striping, and thermoplastic pavement marking work throughout the Town.
Patching with mill & overlay work will occur in Savannah, 5th Street in Downtown Frederick, and Tipple Parkway between Colorado Boulevard and Ridgeway Boulevard. Additional asphalt patching is scheduled in Downtown Frederick, Morningside Estates, and other areas identified as an area of need.
Mill & Overlay project maps:
We will link maps with work areas to each listed subdivision. Please be on the lookout for “No Parking” signs and stay off the roads during posted work dates. Work dates will be updated here.
2023 Concrete and Alleyway Maintenance Program Project
The Town of Frederick has contracted Jags Enterprises, Inc. for the 2023 Concrete and Alleyway Maintenance Program Project, which will pave two downtown alleyway segments between Tipple Parkway and 2nd Street from Locust Street to Walnut and Walnut Street to Maple Street.
The alleyways in the downtown area were assessed and included in an improvement program that started in 2016 to pave the existing dirt alleyways and improve downtown infrastructure. Paving alleyways will help to enhance the downtown drainage infrastructure and general roadway resiliency. This year’s project will mark the completion of the Concrete and Alleyway Maintenance Program.
Construction is scheduled to begin the week of Monday, May 1. You can expect construction to extend through May on the two downtown alleyway segments between Tipple Parkway and 2nd Street from Locust Street to Walnut and Walnut Street to Maple Street. If you live on these blocks, don't forget to move your trash and recycle bin to the street in front of your house on your trash pick-up days.
