Current Construction & Roadwork Updates
Each week during the 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.
Do not touch, move, or remove cones, signs, and barricades in roadwork and construction zones.
Displacing site tools impedes and prolongs work.
Motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists are urged to avoid construction areas.
Pay close attention to traffic control signs, detours, and reduce speeds in work zones.
Current Roadwork Projects
2022 Seal Project - Pavement Maintenance Program
The Town of Frederick has contracted Vance Brothers, Inc. for the 2022 Seal Project - Pavement Maintenance Program. This year’s roadway maintenance project will include crack seal, mastic crack seal, slurry seal, striping, and thermoplastic pavement markings.
Slurry seal operations are complete. The slurry seal application provides a new surface with improved skid resistance and will include short-term closure of roads receiving treatment. Areas of work in this year’s project include subdivisions of Eagle Valley and Downtown Frederick. Stripping and thermoplastic marking work are scheduled for the week of June 20.
2022 Pavement Maintenance Program
The Town of Frederick has contracted Asphalt Specialties Company, Inc. for the 2022 Pavement Maintenance Program. The maintenance of asphalt pavement will preserve the integrity and expand the life of the roadway preventing more drastic and costly maintenance treatment methods in the future. This year’s Pavement Maintenance Program will include patching and 1.5-inch mill & overlay work throughout the Town.
2022 Colorado Boulevard Mill & Overlay Project
This capital improvement project is complete. The Town of Frederick contracted Asphalt Specialties Company, Inc. for work associated with the 2022 Colorado Boulevard Mill & Overlay Project. In 2022, Colorado Boulevard between Tipple Parkway and Bella Rosa Parkway was milled and overlaid to produce a new roadway surface. Elements of the 2022 Project included crack seal, mastic crack seal, asphalt patching, 2.0-inch mill & overlay, roadway striping, and thermoplastic pavement markings.
Always keep an eye out for road workers completing final touches.
2022 Concrete and Alleyway Maintenance Program Project
The Town of Frederick has contracted Stone & Concrete, Inc. for the 2022 Concrete and Alleyway Maintenance Program Project, which will pave two downtown alleyway segments between Tipple Parkway and 2nd Street from Elm Street to Oak and Oak Street to Locust Street.
The alleyways in the downtown area were assessed and included in an improvement program that started in 2016. The program scheduled for completion in 2023 intends to pave the existing dirt alleyways and improve downtown infrastructure. Paving alleyways will help to enhance the downtown drainage infrastructure and general roadway resiliency.
**UPDATE** Construction is ongoing in the alleyway between Locust Street and Elm Street. Residents will need to pace trash and recycle bins on the street for pick up during work while the alley is closed.
Colorado Boulevard and Tipple Parkway Intersection Improvement
As part of the Town of Frederick’s first Transportation Master Plan (TMP), the FELSBURG HOLT & ULLEVIG (FHU) consultant team provided a recommended transportation improvement project list. One of the key short-term strategies of the recommendations focused on improved intersection operations and added capacity at priority corridors. As a result, FHU and the TMP Planning Action Committee (PAC) recognized the Colorado Boulevard and Tipple Parkway intersection as the area of highest need for the Town of Frederick.
The design phase of the Colorado Boulevard and Tipple Parkway intersection improvements was awarded to Martin/Martin Consulting Engineers and finalized in December 2021. The intersection improvements provided the ultimate roadway design, including installing additional auxiliary acceleration and deceleration turn lanes, striping, signage, plus new traffic signals and signal timing to handle the five-lane configuration at the intersection for improved traffic operations. Also included is the installation of new ADA curb ramps, sidewalk connections, and pedestrian crossing controls for increased multimodal public safety on a primary route for students traveling to and from Frederick High School. The design also involves installing curb and gutter and other drainage infrastructure for improved drainage in the area as these items currently do not exist on the northern portion of the intersection
To complete this work, the Town of Frederick has contracted with local firm DeFalco Construction Company to construct the Colorado Boulevard and Tipple Parkway Intersection Improvement. Work is anticipated to begin early to mid-summer. Work dates will be updated here.
Ridgeway Boulevard Road Closed for Sanitary Sewer Main Line Construction.
3/7/22: A contractor working for St. Vrain Sanitation District is constructing a sanitary sewer main in Firestone, CO between Grant Avenue and Fraser Street on Frontier Street (CR 15). On Monday, March 7, the St. Vrain Sanitation District continues work on the main sewer line installation project that will impact traffic where Ridgeway Boulevard (CR 15) turns into Frontier Street (CR 15). As a result, Ridgeway Boulevard will be closed in both directions (northbound & southbound) just north of Fraser Street and Fraser Circle. Fraser Street and Fraser Circle should remain open.
The road is scheduled to be closed on Monday, March 7, and is expected to remain closed until June or until work is completed. Weather, supply chains, or unanticipated delays may change the schedule for project completion. Updates will be posted on this webpage.
**UPDATE** The sanitary sewer installation on County Road 15 (Frontier Street in Firestone) as part of the Hidden Creek subdivision is ongoing and is projected to be completed in June. CR 15 north of Fraser Street will remain closed, and the detour utilizing Hawthorn Street in Frederick and CR 17 will stay in place until all work is completed.
Pavement Management System
Did you know the Town of Frederick maintains more than 104 miles of public streets? To manage this system, the Town Engineering Department and Public Works use a Pavement Management System to assist in evaluating the pavement condition, serviceable life and maintenance strategies for Town-owned roads and alleyways.
Check out the Pavement Management System page to read more about the methods used in pavement maintenance and rehabilitation.
