About the Project
Reconstruction of South Rockrimmon Boulevard between Vindicator and Pro Rodeo Drive is expected to begin April 8 and finish Spring 2020.
The reconstruction will improve safety and travel by creating a smooth road surface, address drainage issues, and improve pedestrian walkways through curb and gutter improvements. Schmidt Construction is the contractor on the project.
- ADA ramp installation at intersections
- Sidewalk repairs in localized areas

- Inlet installation to improve drainage
- Median removals to improve roadway drainage
- Roadway profile adjustments in localized areas to improve drainage
Traffic and Construction Phases
South Rockrimmon Boulevard will remain open for traffic, with one lane traveling in each direction. Motorists should anticipate delays and expect lane switches throughout the duration of the project. Short-term intersection, alley and driveway closures will also occur. Access to all businesses will be provided.
Residents are encouraged to utilize the city's Cone Zone map and the mobile app Waze during the construction process.
Construction will occur in phases, however, all work is weather-dependent, and schedules are subject to change.
A total of $5.5 million has been allocated for this project.
The Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority is funding $4,661,000, and $839,000 is funded through the City's general fund for Capital Improvement.
A community open house is scheduled for Monday, April 1 from 5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m. at the Rockrimmon Library.
Project team members will be available to review reconstruction details and answer questions. There will not be a formal presentation, so the community is invited to stop by any time to view displays and provide feedback.
