Rampart Range Road Transmission Main Replacement Project

Upcoming Work Within The Next 2 Weeks:
Updated 6/20/2022

The construction staging area is currently operational on the east of Rampart Range Road across from Verandah Court. Materials will begin to be delivered to the staging area starting Monday, June 20th. Crews will be actively working to minimize impacts to area residents from operations at the staging area and mitigate any dust generation. The eastern walking path is currently closed through the staging area while the western walking path will remain open to the community throughout construction. There will be construction traffic crossing the western walking path. Please use caution while utilizing the walking paths in the area. 

Transmission Main Replacement in Rampart Range Road is anticipated to begin at the intersection of Rampart Range Road and the southern end of Village Circle East, then proceed to the north. Traffic control will begin starting Monday, June 20th to implement lane closures on Rampart Range Road in order to accommodate construction of the transmission main. The traffic control will shift northbound traffic to the existing eastern southbound lane between the southern entrance to Village Circle East and Rampart Court. Southbound traffic will be restricted to the western southbound lane starting north of Rampart Court and ending after the southern entrance to Village Circle East. This will allow northbound and southbound traffic to each have a dedicated lane through the work zone so traffic can move continuously in both directions. Lane closures are shown in the “Map of Construction Area” at the link above. Entrance and Exit from Rampart Range Road to intersecting streets will remain open through the traffic control area. 

Rampart Range Road is planned to be milled in the location of the new water transmission main starting on June 22nd.  Excavation for water pipe installation is planned to start on June 23rd with pipe installation starting June 27th.  

Please be vigilant as you travel through the work zone to ensure the safety of our community and construction personnel. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we work to complete this construction as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Roxborough Water and Sanitation District will provide updates on a weekly basis for the duration of the project at https://www.roxwater.org/rampart-range-road-transmission-main-replacement. A map of the construction is available at https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/74a5ce11d16d4694808bc71b594d11ba.

Wildfire Mitigation Strategies

Calvin Brown, RVMD Board Member & 19-Year Veteran of the Fire Service

Letter from RVMD Board Member, Calvin Brown

"The recent fires in Boulder County and the one involving our neighbors back in December, remind us how quickly tragedy can strike. I encourage everyone to review the community wildfire plan as well as sign up for the code red notification system.  Having a plan in place can allow for a faster and safer evacuation in case of an emergency.  Below are links to West Metro Fire,  Douglas County Sheriff, and FEMA. This information is vital, not only during a urban interface fire, but other disasters as well.

Stay safe and healthy."

Recreation Center Effort Concludes

The Roxborough Village Metropolitan District Community Master Plan is Complete!

At the August 17, 2021 Board meeting, the Roxborough Village Metropolitan District Board of Directors voted unanimously to not place the recreation center question on the November ballot. The community was vocal about its opposition and the cost of the proposed facility was ultimately greater than anticipated. The Board's decision was based on more than 18 months of financial and design analysis as well as positive and negative feedback from hundreds of residents.
