construction project traffic impacts

(Week of April 25-29)


N. Nevada Ave. Work


From April 25-29, work will take place along N. Nevada Ave. The northbound right lane on N. Nevada Ave. just north of Campus Heights Dr. will be closed from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. daily due to new turn lane construction/work.  Local access for business and residents will still be available off of N. Nevada Ave. This work should be complete by Friday, April 29, pending any weather delays.

For information or questions on construction impacts, please call Blue Ridge Construction at (719) 578-5225 EXT 10.

This work is 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, 35 percent for maintenance, and 10 percent for transit. The capital portion of the tax will sunset at the end of 2014.
