View proposed maps here. Please note, on the maps that Alternate B was chosen as the alignment along I-25 instead of along Havana. Alternate B allows us to avoid a costly and potentially unsafe deer guard on Havana.
During fall 2022 from October to November, is the migratory period, and drivers are encouraged to take extra caution as they travel through the corridor. Electronic variable message boards along the route will inform drivers of the potential danger. Drivers should stay alert and slow down, particularly at dawn and dusk when wildlife is more active. If drivers do see wildlife in the roadway, they should not swerve, as they are more likely to wreck when trying to avoid an animal. It is best to slow down if possible and look for other wildlife as most travel in groups.
Colorado is among the top states in the nation protecting wildlife migration corridors. The wildlife mitigation system installed along Highway 9 between Silverthorne and Kremmling CO saw wildlife/vehicle collisions decrease by more than 90%. This shows promise that similar types of collisions will also decrease in the Castle Pines and Castle Rock area.
