Investing in our Neighborhoods 

The Dupont Road Project will expand the road to 4-lanes with a turn lane, where needed. A sidewalk on the north side and a trail on the south side of the road will be added.

Project Updates

  • December 18, 2018 -- Two lanes of traffic in each direction will open this week.  Intermediate asphalt is down and on the afternoon of  Dec 19 two lanes eastbound will open and the traffic signal will go live at Dawsons/La Cabreah/Dupont.  Two lanes of westbound traffic will open with intermediate asphalt in place this Saturday. Intermediate asphalt is not the final asphalt finish.  Final asphalt will take place next spring. 

  • December 9, 2018 -- Progress continues – as you can see from the new aerial video above. This week, work was completed on the water main connections on the southwest corner of Dawsons/Creek and La Cabreah.  Water main work near Casa’s restaurant will continue into next week. Crews continued to work on concrete and are still hoping to put asphalt down before the holiday – but that is weather dependent.  Scroll down to see seven new photos.
  • November 29, 2018 – The wet cold week is still not allowing asphalt to be poured.  Crews are still optimistic and weather depending they still hope to pour asphalt soon. The water main connections are being done at select locations this week.  Water connections are continuing and work just west of  Lone Eagle, on the north side of Dupont for stormwater maintenance on the Roy Drainage moved forward this week. 

  • November 21, 2018 – This week worked continued on curbs and gutters, a bio-swale area near Oak Trail and filling in dirt.  Overnight precipitation on Monday, coupled with colder temperatures, would not allow for asphalt paving.  The contractor is well aware of the anxiousness of the public to open Dupont to four lanes, but the weather has to warm a bit and there has to be dry conditions. 

  • November 15, 2018 – Weather interrupted crews a bit this week and Thursday’s ice event stopped all work. Still, crews were able to continue work on underground ductile work for lighting and placed wing-walls at the large structure underneath Dupont Road near Oak Trail. Concrete was poured for curb and gutter on the westbound lane from La Cabreah to Dupont Village. We need warmer drier weather to get the 4-lanes open for the winter.  Hopefully winter has not set in early.

  • November 9, 2018  -- While the project will not wrap up until next year, crews hope to have four lanes of traffic (two in each direction) open by the end of the month.  This week workers were finishing the south portion of a large culvert just west of Oak Trail Road in the eastbound lanes.  Work on the water main continues and lighting foundations underground wiring for the lighting continues to progress.  Paving work continued and will continue into next week.  Work will continue next week for new curbs and gutters in the eastbound lanes.  

  • November 2, 2018 – Rain interrupted the construction week causing delays on planned work. Early in the week paving occurred in areas between La Cabreah and Lima Road.  The water line was completed on this same stretch of road.  Crews are testing the water main between Dawsons Creek and Dupont Village. Partial work on a culvert under Dupont Road began this week.
