    When is the sound barrier wall going to be completed on the South Parker Rd project? The Town of Parker has dramatically increased the amount of traffic and people making the road noise is unbearable. Last update was that the wall would be completed mid-December and we all see that that hasn't happened.

    JC asked 26 days ago

    Hello, JC. Thank your for submitting your question through Let's Talk Parker. Construction on the sound barrier wall was impacted due to supply chain issues that the contractor experienced with acquiring lumber. Project construction has begun and is expected to finish by the end of January 2022.

    While there are some protected bike lanes in Parker, there are some places those lanes suddenly end (northbound on Chambers at Lincoln, for example). With high traffic volume on those roads, it can feel unsafe to continue in the street on a bicycle in those instances. Laws regarding riding a bicycle on a sidewalk vary from place to place in Colorado, and I've been unable to find a statement directly addressing my question. Is it legal for a bicyclist to ride their bike on a sidewalk within Parker town limits?

    shancdoyle asked about 2 months ago

    Hello. Thank you for contacting us about cycling in Parker. Two things to note from your question: 

    1. The Town of Parker does not have laws prohibiting bicycles on sidewalks. We hope that cyclists using Parker's sidewalks follow proper trail etiquette, such as observing trail speed limits (15 mpg) and yielding to pedestrians and equestrians when appropriate. 

    2. Regarding the lack of bike lanes on Chambers Road northbound from Lincoln Road, much of that roadway is actually not within the Town of Parker's boundary. The bulk of that stretch of road is in unincorporated Douglas County. 

    If you have any other questions about cycling in Parker, just let us know!

    When will the South Parker Road project actually be completed? The construction company tore out the sound wall months ago and hasn’t been replaced yet. The noise pollution from the large amount of traffic on Parker Rd is out of hand. No one on the town staff seems to know anything and only states it has a November completion date. Realistically, I do not see the project being completed on time.

    JC asked 3 months ago

    Hello, JC. Here is the latest update on this project from our project coordinator as of Nov. 1:

    "The contractor has experienced supply chain issues with procuring lumber for the sound barrier wall and is just now starting to receive the material. Grading for the wall is underway and their updated schedule shows the sound barrier wall being completed in mid-December. Within the trail, there are several pull boxes that must be installed which house utility connections. Obtaining the pull boxes has also been impacted by supply chain issues causing a 12-week lead-time, so the contractor will not be receiving them until late December. Therefore, the project will not be completed by mid-November as was hoped, but will be more likely be delayed until January."

    With all of this massive residential building in Parker, it appears to me that the roads/intersections coming in and out of these new/additional residential builds are not equipped to handle all of this traffic. Example: Motsenbocker and Hess; Motsenbocker and French Creek and Motsenbocker & Stroh Road. This has become a nightmare and very dangerous to get across these intersections. Why aren't they improving the access before they build these new additional housing development?

    cengle0416 asked 4 months ago

    The Town will be constructing capital improvements in the near future to address the concerns raised at the French Creek and Hess Road intersections. First, a project will be starting this fall to construct new turn lane improvements at the intersection of Motsenbocker and Hess Road.  A double left turn lane (northbound to westbound) will be added to alleviate congestion at this intersection.  The Town expects these improvements to be completed by the second quarter of 2022.  

    A traffic signal is planned at the intersection of French Creek and Motsenbocker Road and is included in the 2022 Budget.  Assuming Town Council approves this budget, this signal should be installed and operational in the Spring of 2022.  

    Lastly, the Looking Glass developer is responsible for the intersection improvements at Stroh Road and Motsenbocker Road.  Some of these improvements are currently under construction, with additional improvements planned for 2022.

    Thank you!
