Project Summary

The contractor started work in early March 2019 and the project is scheduled for completion in fall 2019.

The Preserve Boulevard Improvement Project includes the following primary components:

  • Prairie Center Drive/Preserve Boulevard intersection improvements.
  • Addition of a second southbound lane on Preserve Boulevard and associated intersection improvements at Anderson Lakes Parkway.
  • Addition of left turn lanes at all intersections along Preserve Boulevard and center medians along the full length of the roadway.
  • Addition of a storm water pump station to pump water from Eden Lake to Neil Lake. This is an improvement to the Eden Lake storm water outlet to help control Eden Lake water levels and minimize the impact of large rain events on adjacent properties.
  • New landscaping, including replacement of approximately 80 trees removed for the project with 97 new deciduous and coniferous trees, and more than 100 shrubs and perennials.

Preliminary Private Utility Relocation

Preliminary private utility work is ongoing along Preserve Boulevard in preparation for the City construction project. Private utility companies such as CenterPoint Energy, Comcast, Xcel Energy and others are relocating their utility lines out of the way of the proposed roadway improvements. This work will include lane closures as well as pedestrian facility closures and detours.
