The Perry Park Road Traffic Safety Improvement Project is located on Perry Park Road from the Douglas/El Paso County Line (Milepost 9.5) to Wolfensberger Road (Milepost 28.2). The project includes shoulder widening and installation of guardrail through the curves on Perry Park Road just north of Red Rock Drive between Milepost 18.7 and Milepost 19.5 to mitigate overturning crashes through these reverse curves. The project also includes the construction of rumble stripes along the centerline and edge line striping of the roadway to mitigate off-the-road accidents and opposite-direction sideswipe accidents.
The project is being funded by a federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) grant in the amount of $2,148,300 with a 10% local match in the amount of $238,700 from Douglas County.
Design is currently underway and a project virtual “open house” is scheduled for this summer to solicit public comment on the proposed improvements.
