Transportation Master Plan
Visualize the future of transportation, updated master plan looks to 2040
Your Town thinks ahead. When it comes to transportation, our plan for the future is visualized in the Transportation Master Plan.
Think beyond roads. This document outlines plans for all aspects of our transportation system over the next two decades – including bicycle routes, pedestrian links, road construction projects and more. The plan was last updated in 2011, and a lot has changed. Now, we’re updating the plan to look at 2040.
Thank you for your feedback!
In fall 2016, the Town gathered feedback regarding our transportation system. That feedback – along with research and analysis – led to a proposed list of roadway, pedestrian and bicycle projects along with ideas for managing demand on the road for the next five, 10 and 20 years.
During April, we gathered feedback on that list. Then, you told us what you thought about the draft plan, and we're reviewing those. Thank you!
Town Council is expected to consider adoption on Oct. 3. (This was postponed from the Sept. 19 meeting.)
We’ll keep you informed. Sign up for updates on the Transportation Master Plan. You’ll be among the first to know when we need more feedback, when we have a draft ready for your review and when the draft is published.
There are a lot of projects already planned over the next five years. Here’s a look at some of those:
- New Roundabout at Third and Perry streets Downtown (2017)
- Upgrades to the traffic signal system (2017)
- Improvements at Founders Parkway and Allen Way (2018)
- Ridge Road widening from Highway 86 to Plum Creek Parkway (2018)
- Improvements at Crowfoot Valley Road and Founders Parkway (2018)
- Fifth Street widening (2021)
- Roundabout at Wolfensberger Road and Plum Creek Parkway (2018)
- Saving for Crystal Valley Parkway Interchange
- Saving for the widening of North Meadows Drive from The Meadows to U.S. 85
- Extension of Mitchell Creek Trail to Ridge Road, including a neighborhood connection to Tabor Court (2016)
- East Plum Creek Trail expansion from Perry Street 2 miles south to Crystal Valley Parkway (2017-18)
In 2005, Castle Rock voters opted out of the Regional Transportation District (RTD) and related taxes. Transit will be part of the conversation looking ahead to 2040 in addition to regional conversations with Douglas County and the Colorado Department of Transportation.
As the Town grows, it’s also important to study parking. A separate study is underway.
