Bridge Repairs - Traffic Impacts Austin Bluffs Parkway over Cottonwood Creek

Bridge deck repairs on the Austin Bluffs Bridge over Cottonwood Creek will begin again on July 9. The work is expected to be completed by July 11. 

The project includes:

  • Concrete removal
  • Expansion joint replacement     
On Saturday, July 9, beginning at 7:30 am, Austin Bluffs Parkway, north of Woodmen Road, will be reduced to a single lane for repairs to the expansion joint. The lane closures will shift as the project continues.


Drivers should expect some delays and use alternate routes when possible.


For the safety and expediency of construction and the safety of the traveling public, the City of Colorado Springs asks motorists to pay close attention to posted speed limits and signs throughout the project area. All construction activities are weather and resource dependent.


This project is funded by the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority.
