In a report to the Castle Pines City Council, City Manager Michael Penny outlines various programs and projects that are taking place, including:
School flashers — Two of the three existing school flashers have new equipment installed that allows the city to monitor and change flasher operations remotely. The last school flasher is scheduled for next month. Additionally, several of the flashers were updated with larger LED lights.
Castle Pines Parkway reconstruction — Bids for Castle Pines Parkway reconstruction from Yorkshire to Monarch were to be received on April 14. Analysis of the bids and concrete versus asphalt alternative schedules will begin after the low bidders for each alternative are determined. Council will see the proposed contactor and bid at an upcoming council meeting.
I-25 ramp work — CDOT started the Castle Pines Parkway and Interstate 25 ADA ramp program, with an expectation of two weeks to complete. The goal is any ramp removed, will be replaced that day, barring unforeseen conditions. The Colorado Department of Transportation is required to have all accesses ADA compliant.
Pothole repair — Pothole repair operations continue on Castle Pines Parkway and Monarch. The location and schedule are tied with other operations occurring within the city. With the current weather, the city is using a more permanent pothole repair methodology. To report potholes, visit the website at PWRequests@castlepinesco.gov. Crews are positioned to address potholes that show up overnight.
Street sweeping — Castle Pines staff is currently scheduling this year’s sweeping of the Priority 1 and 2 streets. Staff is considering the possibility of accelerating the sweeping of residential streets from fall to early this summer. The communication’s department will keep the community apprised of this work. Once the sweeping is complete, striping operations will begin.
