Coal Creek Parkway Traffic

“We’ve got to keep this traffic
Flowing and accept a little spin”  Cake, Long Line of Cars

Newcastle Traffic Coal Creek

So, we got this memo from the city of Newcastle: 

Road Access Closures

Three access routes along Coal Creek Parkway will be closed from approximately 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. starting Monday, September 16, and continuing through Wednesday, September 18.

Three road barricades will be placed at 135th Avenue NE (primary access to milepost community and Newcastle Elementary School), SE 79th Place and at Newcastle Golf Club Road. Barricades will be removed from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. View this vicinity map showing closures as A, B and C, and access options as 1, 2 and 3. Closures are due to the Newcastle overlay project on Coal Creek Parkway underway.

We know it’s coming. We can grumble our way through it or we can (rock) roll with it.
