Who is ready to see the North Meadows Extension construction start? Well, according to the town of Castle Rock that is expected to begin in the fall of 2013. This major project is currently the number one transportation priority in the town. As soon as CDOT grants final right of way clearance we should see big changes coming to the Meadows. This new road will connect from the Meadows to U.S. Highway 85 to Interstate 25 via North Meadows Drive and Castlegate Drive. Building this roadway will provide a second northern access in and out of the Meadows. Luckily the Town is now able to fund north and southbound on/off ramps from Interstate 25. This extension is vital to relieving traffic and congestion through the Meadows community, especially with Castle Rock Adventist Hospital now open for business. The town of Castle Rock has a great site linked to the TAP (Transportation Action Plan) to stay up-to-date on the progress http://www.crgov.com/tap.
