Construction and Maintenance Projects

The County’s transportation network consists of more than 2,000 miles of paved and gravel roads, and related right-of-way assets. The Engineering Division’s Traffic Engineering, Design, Construction Management, Real Estate, and Infrastructure Planning Sections handle all aspects of the transportation system including policy and standards, planning, and contract project execution. The Operations Division’s Highway Section handles in-house maintenance and repair of County roads and bridges, drainage, signs and signals, and right-of-way. Below is detailed information about current capital construction projects, transportation planning, road maintenance, and other highway projects.

Please click on the individual projects below to find out if any road closures/detours are in place.

Project: Charter Oak Ranch Road

From Road: I-25
To Road: Fort Carson Gate 19
Current Status: Construction
Start: 01/03/2022
End: 2023

Project Details:

To accommodate Fort Carson’s ongoing expansion, El Paso County is working with the Army to improve the roadway infrastructure from I-25 to Gate 19 to access the base’s military training infrastructure. The roads leading to Gate 19 are in substandard condition and are unable to support expected traffic. The project will reconstruct Charter Oak Ranch Road and Santa Fe Avenue leading to Gate 19 at the Fort Carson Army Post.

Roadway Improvements: The road will be rebuilt and widened in the westbound direction from the intersection with Santa Fe Avenue to Gate 19. A roundabout will replace the four-way stop sign intersection with Santa Fe Avenue. Curb & gutter and sidewalk will be added along with improving an inadequate curve radius for this stretch. Turn lanes will be added for enhancing access to business and Fort Carson.

Drainage Improvements: This will entail replacement of existing features with new pipes, inlets, and water quality/detention features along various locations of the Charter Oak Ranch Road segment where roadway improvements are planned.

Structural Improvements: To accommodate the realignment and widening, retaining walls will be constructed to retain the associated embankments that will be constructed.

Safety Benefits: Improved Infrastructure, Enhance connectivity and efficiency for Charter Oak Ranch Road, the entry point to Fort Carson’s Gate 19 from the I-25 corridor.

Typical work hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Limited weekend or night work is possible. All work is dependent on weather and resource availability. The construction schedule is subject to change. Updates will be provided as the project progresses.

Project Team: El Paso County, CDOT, Michael Baker International (Design), SEMA Construction, Inc. (Construction)
Road Closure: Starting on January 3, the Contractor, SEMA Construction, Inc., will begin work on Charter Oak Ranch Road between Santa Fe Avenue and Fort Carson Gate 19.

Project: Elbert Road Bridge Deck Replacement

Road: Elbert Rd between Latigo Rd and Murphy Rd
Current Status: Planning
Start: Spring 2022
End: Summer 2022

Project Details:
El Paso County Public Works will be performing bridge deck replacement work along Elbert Road between Latigo Road and Murphy Road starting Spring 2022. Weather permitting, the project is expected to take about 16 weeks. Motorists are encouraged to use Latigo Road, Eastonville Road, and Murphy Roads as detours during construction. These gravel routes through neighborhoods require drivers to travel at low speeds. Those using the alternate routes should plan for added travel time. Drivers are reminded to reduce speeds, and to watch for workers, equipment, signs, and barricades. El Paso County road maintenance crews wish to thank drivers in advance for their cooperation. The full road closure will accelerate the safe and efficient completion of this project. Funding is provided through the El Paso County Road and Bridge fund and Federal Funds (shared 20/80 split).

Project Details:

The design, property acquisition, and construction for the Highway 105 improvements are being accomplished in multiple phases. The first segment of the Project, known as Project A (I-25 interchange east ramps to Lake Woodmoor Drive), will extend the 4-lane section east of Knollwood Drive and includes improved shoulders and additional turn lanes and sidewalks. Ongoing goals for Project A include completing the final design and property acquisition to take Project A to construction. The second segment of the Project, known as Project B (Lake Woodmoor Drive to Martingale Drive) will generally include widening the road to 3-lanes, improving the vertical alignment, and adding shoulders and additional turn lanes. Ongoing goals for Project B include completing the final design and property acquisition to take Project B to construction. Preliminary design for the remainder of the corridor (Martingale Drive to SH-83) continues. The phasing of construction of future segments will continue to be evaluated as part of the ongoing design.
