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.

2018 Striping

 
10/15/18 - Thermoplastic striping of the roundabout at Colorado Blvd and 5th Street will take place overnight tonight 10/15, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. The same application will take place at the Aggregate Blvd (CR 7) roundabout tomorrow night 10/16 from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. This Saturday and Sunday 10/20-21, epoxy paint striping will take place on Colorado Blvd and Aggregate Blvd during daylight hours. Flaggers and cones will be used for traffic control during this work so please use caution when driving in these areas. 

Village East Public Improvements


10/5/18 - Ridgeway Blvd (CR 15) is closed from Tipple Pkwy (CR 16) to McClure Avenue so the developer can construct public improvements for the Village East neighborhood. Pipeline for sewer is being constructed and then the road will be paved once the pipe is completed. We anticipate that this area will be closed until November 2nd.

Crist Park Playground Closure


10/10/18 - The playground at Crist Park is closed to replace the engineered wood fiber (EWF) with a poured-in-place playground surface. This resurfacing creates a more ADA accessible and safer play environment, and also has a much longer useful life than EWF, making it a more cost effective option. The wet weather has delayed this project's timeline.


Downtown Drainage Construction


10/10/18 - Construction to upgrade the storm drainage in Downtown Frederick continues as weather permits. Currently, 5th Street is closed from Main Street to just past the Elm Street intersection. Work in the intersections will take the longest due to utility line lowering and new junction boxes and inlets that need to be poured and set. Main Street is now open in both directions. All of your favorite Downtown businesses can still be accessed by detouring using 6th Street or 4th Street to Oak Street to get back to 5th Street. The middle of the road has been milled along 5th Street from Locust Street to Elm Street. This area is still driveable, just use caution. Read more information about this project, including schedule, detour routes and information on our Come Around the Construction Giveaway Contest and Business Offers!

I-25 and Hwy 52


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

7/23/18 - The 2018 trail segments in the Eagle Valley and Angel View neighborhoods are largely complete, however, the contractor has some follow-up work to complete.  This will include replacing some segments of the concrete that was recently poured, seeding disturbed areas, and placing rock next to one trail segment.


Safe Routes to School


The design for the Safe Routes to School is well underway.  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.  This provides a safe route for students to the east of Thunder Valley K-8.  Construction is anticipated later this summer.
