Snow Delays Crosswalk Progress
By Terri Wiebold
The Castle Pines North (CPN) Metro District has completed the necessary concrete work on the new crosswalks on Hidden Point Boulevard and on Monarch near Serena. Douglas County Public Works was scheduled to install the signage and markings at the two locations, but recent weather has caused delays.
According to Douglas County Traffic Services Supervisor, Carlos Zambrano, the delays are temporary and work will be resumed as soon as weather permits. Signals will be up in the next week or so, and interim markings will be placed at the crosswalk sites until more permanent ones are added in the spring.
Drivers traveling along Monarch near these two locations are urged to use extreme caution over the next few weeks as the transition is made. The Metro District and the County have moved very quickly in bringing this project to completion, and CPN residents are to thank for spearheading the effort.
