US 36 & Community Drive Turn Lanes

Update 12.05.18

A public meeting was held May 9, 2018 to review and discuss the 30% design plans for the US36 and Community Drive intersection improvements. Although attendance was low the feedback received was very helpful. As a result of the feedback provided, Town staff looked into the feasibility of a roundabout at this intersection. Soon after this idea was proposed, the Stanley Park Master Plan (SPMP) process was underway wherein the roundabout concept was evaluated. The SPMP has now affirmed this concept will fit the vision for future park improvements. Town staff is now preparing to resume design in anticipation that the Town Board's consideration of the SPMP will also affirm a roundabout is appropriate.

The benefits of roundabouts to the Estes Park community will be discussed and presented at the January 8, 2019 Town Board Study Session. Learn more about the benefits of roundabouts by viewing the Federal Highway Administration's video.
