Circle Drive Bridge over Las Vegas and Hancock Bridge Repairs

Construction of the repairs on the underside of the Circle Drive Bridges over Las Vegas Street, Hancock Expressway, and Fountain Creek will begin on August 23. The work is expected to be completed by November 1. 

The project improvements will include:

  • Pier Cap repairs
  • Concrete patching  
  • Waterproofing the concrete pier cap


On Monday, August 23, beginning at 7:30 am, eastbound Circle Drive east of Janitell Road will be reduced to a single lane for repairs to the piers. The lane closures will shift as the project continues with each lane closure lasting approximately three weeks. Once the eastbound repairs have been completed, construction will shift to the westbound bridges.


The City is in the initial stages of a project to address existing deteriorated conditions on the bridges on Circle Drive. This effort will begin the repair process so that the functional life of the structures can be extended.


Drivers should expect some delays to complete this work 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 ask motorists to pay close attention to posted speed limits and signs through the project area. All construction activities are weather and resource dependent.


Media should contact Dan Krueger, at 385-5385 with any questions.


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