After breaking ground in 2013, the multi-million dollar North Meadows Extension roadway project is in its final stages of construction and, as of press time, is expected to be open to the public in September.
The new two-mile long roadway, now referred to as Castle Rock Parkway and North Meadows Drive, connects The Meadows development in Castle Rock to U.S. Highway 85 and Interstate 25, just north of Founders/Meadows Parkways and the Outlets at Castle Rock.
The Town of Castle Rock (Town), Douglas County, and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) partnered on the project to address the congestion in this area and to provide a second northern access for The Meadows residents.
A roadway dedication ceremony was held in August for the public. The Town, Douglas County, and CDOT officials gave a brief overview and history of the project, and attendees were treated to live music, food, and “sneak peek” tours of the project. For additional information, visit CRgov.com/NME
