This joint project between CDOT and the Town of Breckenridge resulted in a new Roundabout at South Park Avenue (SH-9) and Four O’clock Road.
The design documents were prepared to CDOT local Agency standards and were advertised by the Town. In 2010 J-U-B prepared a level of service feasibility study in which both a single lane roundabout and a conventional signalized intersection were compared.
Once the roundabout was selected as the preferred intersection, J-U-B began design in late 2012 and completed design in 2014. The design included a single lane roundabout while considering storm drain locations, major fiber optic lines, gas regulation station relocation, Right of Way, bike and pedestrian traffic and construction traffic control. Landscape and lighting (street & pedestrian) plans were included in the final construction plan set. CDOT Right of Way plans were prepared for this project by King Surveyors.
The Town of Breckenridge acquired the required ROW and easements for this project during 2015 and 2016 and the roundabout was constructed in 2017. The contractor had 2.5 months to build the roundabout in order for the roadway to be reopened for the town’s 4th of July festivities.
