Vincent Drive Road Extension - Phase I construction project traffic impacts

(Week of March 14-March 18)


Dublin Blvd. and Vincent Dr. Work


Work continues at the intersection of Dublin and Vincent Dr. The intersection will remain closed for boring operations.  There is a detour in place via the southern access to Current off of Dublin Blvd. (approx. 150 ft. east of the intersection of Dublin Blvd and Vincent Dr.) back onto Vincent via a temporary road.  The detour will allow traffic to access Vincent Rd.  Access to businesses and residents at the intersection will still be open.  Signs will be in place directing traffic.  The bore work is scheduled to be completed no later than 3 p.m. on Friday, March 18, 2011, weather dependent.

Variable lane closures will take place north and south bound on N. Nevada Ave. just north of Campus Heights.  Lane closures will occur between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily.

This work is being funded by the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority (PPRTA). The PPRTA was formed when voters in Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Green Mountain Falls and El Paso County approved a one percent sales tax in November of 2004 to address infrastructure and transit needs in the region.  The tax revenue is divided into three categories: 55 percent for capital improvements (such as this project), 35 percent for maintenance, and 10 percent for transit. The capital portion of the tax will sunset at the end of the year in 2014.
