City Construction Projects

Monticello North Corridor Project involves improvements to the Monticello Road Corridor between Johnson Drive and 66th Street. The proposed improvements include a roundabout at Clear Creek and Monticello, a southbound right turn lane into the north entrance to the High School, a southbound left turn lane into the Elementary School at both entrances, dual northbound left turn lanes at the 61st and Monticello intersection, mill and overlay of asphalt surface, and replacement of deteriorated curb and sidewalk. The construction for this project is partially funded through Federal Funds.

The original study and report was completed and approved at the January 26, 2009 City Council meeting. This project was originally scheduled for construction in 2010, but has been postponed until 2013 summer construction. There is a public meeting scheduled to discuss the updated engineering study. It is March 14, 2013, at Clear Creek Elementary School, 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Construction is anticipated to begin in June and be substantially complete by School resuming in August.

General Information

Purpose: The purpose of the study is to distinguish the needs of drivers, residents, pedestrians, bicyclists and other stakeholders to include them in an analysis report that identifies the best solutions for moving traffic and maintaining safety in and around schools and neighborhoods along Monticello Road.

Background: Monticello Road is a two-lane, curbed roadway with sidewalks on both sides, streetlights and storm sewer facilities. This particular section of Monticello Road between Johnson Drive and 66th Street is experiencing an increase in traffic due to commercial and residential development, including the addition of schools. The study team will evaluate a number of alternatives that could reduce traffic backups, while maintaining pedestrian safety, including traffic signals; roundabouts; access restricted medians; roadway widening; two-way left turn lanes; auxiliary right turn lanes; and school zone signaling and signing.

Once a concept has been approved, the City will request proposals for the design and plan preparation phase.

How the public can get involved: The Monticello North study team will incorporate public comment and suggestions throughout the process through a variety of channels, including an open house; multiple drop-in centers; public meeting; e-mails and newsletters.
