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.
An anticipated safety and circulation improvements project will begin construction in downtown Parker in Fall 2021.
This project will add pedestrian safety and circulation improvements on Victorian Drive and Mainstreet, as well as a new traffic signal at the Mainstreet/Victorian Drive (west) intersection. For more details about this project, see the diagram displayed below.
The project is scheduled to begin construction in October 2021 and continue into June 2022 (weather and temperature dependent).
