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: Elbert Road Bridge Deck Replacement

Road: Elbert Rd between Latigo Rd and Murphy Rd
Current Status: Planning
Start: Summer 2021
End: Fall 2021

Project Details:
El Paso County Public Works will be performing bridge deck replacement work along Elbert Road between Latigo Road and Murphy Road starting Summer 2021. Weather permitting, the project is expected to take about 12 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).

Map of New Meridian Road Project Construction

Project Details:

This project consists of connecting “New” Meridian to US 24 and extending it to Falcon Highway, creating a full movement signalized intersection at “New” Meridian and US 24, converting the full movement “Old” Meridian and US 24 intersection to right in/right out access only and constructing a Park-n-Ride facility south of US 24 adjacent to “New” Meridian and “Old” Meridian.

Starting on April 26, El Paso County Department of Public Works’ Contractor, HEI Civil, will close Old Meridian Road between US 24 and Falcon Highway for approximately 15 weeks, depending on weather. During the closure, crews will complete drainage improvements, asphalt preparation and paving in connection with the US 24 and Meridian Road Improvements Project.

Motorists shall follow the detour using New Meridian Road, Falcon Highway, and US 24. Local traffic will access Swingline Road from New Meridian Rd or Gelbvieh Road during the closure and business access will remain open, including access directly off the US 24 and Old Meridian Rd Intersection.

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: Highway 105

From Road: I-25
To Road: State Highway 83
Current Status: In Progress
Start: 5/1/2011
End: TBD

Project Details:

The design, property acquisition, and construction for the Highway 105 improvements are being accomplished in multiple phases. El Paso County has an agreement with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) for federal funding for construction of the first segment of the project, known as Project A, from the I-25 interchange east ramps, approximately 1 mile to Lake Woodmoor Drive. The Project will extend the four-lane section east of Knollwood Drive and include improved shoulders, additional turn lanes, and sidewalks. Ongoing goals for Project A include completing the preliminary and final designs and property acquisition. The design is based upon recommendations made in the 2013 Corridor Preservation Plan, and incorporates a 2020 update to the traffic study. The purpose of the traffic study update is to document any changes in traffic conditions and analyses, to update the recommendations from the previous study, if required, and to further refine the recommendations for this first phase of the project. Additionally, El Paso County is in discussions with a few remaining individual property owners, and will continue to take direction from the Board of El Paso County Commissioners (BoCC) and the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority (PPRTA) Board of Directors. These “behind the scene” activities are quite involved, and require extensive time to ensure we meet all regulatory requirements. Final design for Project A is anticipated to be complete in Spring 2021, and subject to property acquisition, construction for this segment is anticipated to begin in early 2022.

Preliminary design for the remainder of the corridor (Lake Woodmoor Drive to SH-83) is in progress, and a future public meeting to discuss is tentatively planned for later in the design process, but has not yet been scheduled. Further details on the public meeting including date and location will be posted on this Project website when scheduled. The reports and presentation materials from the previous corridor study are available and can be accessed by clicking on the link below. Funding for preliminary and final design and construction of the remainder of the corridor, from Lake Woodmoor Drive to SH-83, is included in the Pikes Peak Regional Transportation Authority (PPRTA) Capital funding program over the next 10 years. The phasing and construction of future projects has not yet been determined, but will be evaluated as part of the ongoing preliminary design.

Current Status: Construction
Start: Construction starting March 2020
End: Spring 2021

The project is a safety improvement which will construct a roundabout with associated approaches and pedestrian facilities at the intersection of McLaughlin Road, Old Meridian Road and Rolling Thunder Way.

The project will also include reconstruction of existing New Meridian from US24 through the Rolling Thunder intersection.

Meridian / Rolling Thunder intersection upcoming work
The intersection of Meridian road and Rolling Thunder Way is now open. ADA improvements to the Rolling Thunder Way and Meridian Road intersection will continue in the month of May. The improvements will include installing ADA compliant curb ramps and pedestrian crossings. Watch out for work areas and traffic lane shifts.
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.
