Downtown Safety and Circulation Improvments

Project Update - June 16, 2022

As part of the ongoing Downtown Safety and Circulation Improvements Project, a portion of Mainstreet in downtown Parker between Pine Drive and Victorian Drive (east) will be subject to a temporary lane shift beginning Monday, June 20.

The Mainstreet westbound lane in this area will shift to the south side of the median, resulting in a temporary two-way, non-divided roadway while construction occurs on the north side of the median. In addition to pavement repairs, a right-turn lane will be constructed to assist with easing flow for westbound traffic at the Mainstreet/Victorian Drive (east) intersection.

The Downtown Safety and Circulation Improvements Project began construction in Fall 2021 and has added a number of pedestrian safety and circulation improvements to the downtown area, including a new traffic light at the Mainstreet/Victorian Drive (west) intersection, which became operational in May.

Project Update - May 19, 2022

Construction of a new traffic signal in downtown Parker at the intersection of Mainstreet and Victorian Drive (west), in the area of O’Brien Park, is nearing completion. The traffic signal is expected to be fully operational by Friday, May 27. 

Drivers and pedestrians should be aware of the following details for the upcoming week:

  • The west pedestrian Mainstreet crossing is currently closed. Pedestrians should instead use the north and east Mainstreet pedestrian crossings.
  • On Tuesday, May 24, the east pedestrian crossing will be closed, and pedestrians will be directed to utilize the west and north pedestrian crossings. 
  • The traffic signals will begin flashing on Tuesday, May 24 at 9 a.m. They will be fully turned on in the afternoon.
  • Complete signal operation, including pedestrian signals, will be underway on Friday, May 27. The west, east and north pedestrian crossings will each be open at that point.

Project Update - March 30, 2022

Construction work related to the Downtown Safety and Circulation Improvements Project may result in occasional minor traffic delays in the downtown area early this spring. 

Due to pavement repairs planned for Mainstreet between Victorian Drive (along O'Brien Park) and S. Pine Drive (along the PACE Center), motorists may experience lane closures and/or minor detours. While thru traffic will still be allowed through the downtown area, motorists may want to seek out alternate routes to avoid any delays.  

This project is scheduled to continue into Summer 2022 and will be dependent on weather and temperature conditions.
